KIRKUS REVIEW

The young ranchers of the West, their activities and concerns, provide the theme of this book. It tells of the formation of a 4H club and the benefits it brings to the children of that area. It also tells of how Billy and his friend Tommy train a wild and help prepare two fine horses for the Fair. The Indian family in the story is not unlike the other ranchers. Their songs and festivals still retain a portion of their folk and they are somewhat poorer but essentially the bonds of common interest among all teachers are stronger than rare bonds. As a tale of today's West, this is too uneventful to sustain interest. As a commentary on the climate and life style and life style of that section it ffers .
