KIRKUS REVIEW

Riding the Santa Fe trail in its young days- 1822- makes the setting for young Esty Long's adventures with a supply train- told in a well paced vernacular. Given his chance to go along as wagon man Beaver Jim's helper, Esty jumps at it and en route- runs into all the expected difficulties- a buffalo hunt, Indians, the troublemakers in the group, rival French trappers, a small pox scare which Esty and his bunch are able to help with vaccine, before they get their rewards at the end of the trail. Wagon wheels- rolling steadily.
