SAGEBRUSH SORREL by Frank C. Robertson


Email this review


An author of both adult and juvenile westerns writes an easygoing story that takes its time pleasantly in accounting for two years in the life of young Ollie Bentley and his acquaintance with the wild sorrel, Rowdy. An orphan, fourteen year old Ollie lived with kind Martha and cruel Mel Tidwell when he first saw the colt and its mother. Through the next winters and summers Ollie bucks Mel's cutting authoritarianism, is befriended by the neighboring Worths, captures and trains Rowdy and stakes his claim to him in spite of rustlers and Mel's death at the hoofs of a fear crazed Rowdy. A reliable combination of naturalism and adventure that should hit the horsemarket broadside. Lee Towndsend's black and whites add a finishing touch
