From our Purveyor of Children's Books:
It's always exciting to discover a new title that takes a fresh look at a much loved story. J.R. Sanders has done just that with this new book loosely based on the character of "Little Joe" from the iconic Western ballad, "Little Joe the Wrangler."
New York City orphan Joe Monday dreams of finding a family and of being a cowboy. Things look up when he's sent West on an "orphan train," until he ends up with a pair of pig farmers who only want the free labor he provides. Joe runs away with a cattle drive headed north from Texas, though the cowboys are unsure of their young tag-along. But when disaster strikes, Joe proves that even a kid can be a hero, and learns that dreams really can come true.
What Others are Saying:
"John Sanders has not only written a wonderful story, but he has reopened the Big Book of the American Cowboy for a whole new generation of children to enjoy."
