Book Description

Editorial Reviews

Set in Texas after the Civil War, this is the first in the Chaparral series of historical novels for children. Its an unpretentious, leisurely western about a callow young ranchers first cattle drive. Though discursive and overlong, Duster creeps up on the readers affections, and the story ends in a violent, gripping climax. Especially effective are Dusters encounters with bandits, traders and farmers, and his droll accounts of his many foolish predicaments. The authors sympathies for Mexicans and ``gringos, as well as for both experience and youth, are gracefully balanced; but its his knowledge of the country and ranching life that distinguish the book. Scratchy drawings highlight a few of the livelier moments (such as when a pack mule bucks its load), and a glossary defines some, but not all, unusual terms. Ages 10-up. (March)
