  • This story begins in an old pickup truck, with an old timer cowboy and his dog Matilda He tells you about how cowboys live, and work off the ranch He takes you to get the horses and you go for an overnight ride The whole story is of this old cowboy talking to you, when I read this book I thought that the way it was written was really neat You learn all sorts of neat things about working cows from horseback, and about how times have changed things out west The illustrations are beautiful as well [...]

  • Not a book for a story time, but perfect for any young kids especially boys who are interested in cowboys and the Old West A good account of how things have changed over the years in cowboying The book got me to slightly understanding better why my uncle s love their western ways so much the ones I just didn t understand while growing up Who wouldn t want time to think and reflect, and commune with all around you But I could do that in different ways that don t involve taking care of cattle.

  • I was obsessed with horses when I was a kid I love how the grandpa was trying to his his grandson interested in his way of life Yeah, the kid probably won t grow up to be a rancher, but having a long life appreciation of wildlife and livestock and horses never heard anyone Besides, when the kid makes it big in corporate, he can have vacations at a dude ranch and won t be an instructor lol

  • This book holds a special place in my heart I know the cowboy in the story and have spent time on the ranch they highlight The illustrator did a fantastic job, the details are so exact and just match the characteristics of the cowboy and area.

  • Kids will love this book if they have any interest in ranching or cowboy life It s also likely to appeal to kids who like nonfiction.The art is very well done, and the story encompasses many aspects of cowboy life.

  • While I enjoyed it, my son seemed a little bored There are quite a lot of words per page and that tends to make him antsy He may enjoy it when he gets older.
