Shelfari edited the description of Cowboy Ghost Tuesday, November 3, 2009.
Sixteen year old Tee MacRobertson can saddle a wild mustang and hold his own on a round-up, but proving to his father that he's every bit as good a rancher as his older brother, burly Micah--now that's a real challenge. Robert Newton Peck has crafted a riveting coming-of-age story set in the 1920's in Florida's dusty and rugged "long" country. Tracing one boy's grueling journey on an unforgettable cattle drive, Cowboy Ghost is a heart-pounding drama about what it means to become a man. With a cast of characters that range from the spectral to the down and dirty, a tempestuous storm, unpredictible Seminoles, and an all-out stampede, this unusual cowboy story explores one boys struggle to become the rancher no one but his brother ever believed he could be. 2001 ALA Popular Paperback for YAs 01-02 Golden Sower Award Masterlist (YA Cat.) and 00-01 Tayshas High School Reading List
