A thoroughly horsy story taken young Sparkie, who yearns to experience the real thing, West for a satisfying installment of ranch life. He's given a pony Puff Ball, and lessons in horsemanship by Buffalo Charlie, and has to learn a few things the hard way besides. The sadness of leaving is alleviated when Sparkie finds Puff Ball waiting to go home with him. Mr. Brown's full color pictures tell the story too. His fans will love it. Strong stitching; medium type.
