KIRKUS REVIEW

An unusual slice of life is revealed in this novel of the West, with its hero with a difference. Caught in a white man's world, Tom Black, a Ute Indian, emerges from his lonely, close-to-nature childhood to conquer that world as a rodeo rider. The bitterness that he learned at a white man's school is expended on the horses. Smashed up after a bad fall, he returns to his own country. Told with clarity, simplicity and unfailing interest by a man who obviously knows his country, horses, Indians and rodeos. This is an assuredly adult novel which may well extend its pull to younger readers.
