The author of the bestselling novel "Fifteen Flags" presents this fast-paced, historically accurate yet off-beat tale. In 1881, in Odessa, Texas, 17-year-old Wylie Jackson lands a job as assistant cook on a cattle drive. Only days into the drive, a disastrous stampede occurs. Fearing he's the cause, Wylie sets off by himself in this sensitive portrayal of a friendship between a young man and his pet cattalo.
