    Do you like reading about the outdoors? Well if so, this is the book for you! “Call Me Francis Tucket” is about a boy in his mid-teens who is kidnapped by Indians in the west desert, but escapes by the help of a man named Jason Grimes, a mid-aged man who was also kidnapped by Indians. The two travel together for a few years but decide to go their separate ways. Francis is trying to find the wagon train that his family is on, but is not yet successful. While Francis is sleeping one night he is awakened by two men trying to rob him of all his belongings. But Francis isn’t ready to give up yet. He goes and follows the men and while they are sleeping he robs them to get his stuff back. He makes a so-called friend but not the kind you are probably thinking of. During his long travels he discovers more of a normal friend, but it’s not only one but two children. Their father has been struck by cholera and has left them and died alone. Francis takes the children with him but doesn’t think he can take care of both of them. He finally spots some tracks and sees a wagon train. He catches up with them to give them the children but when they find out their father had cholera, they won’t take them. He keeps trying to find someone and finally does. It is not the best place, but decides to leave them there with the couple. After he goes a way he stops and thinks about what he did. Read the rest of the story to find out what Francis does next. The setting in this story is the west in the desert. I would recommend this book to teen readers who like older stories about adventure in the desert. One adventure was when Francis found the children.

    I was moved with sadness when Francis leaves the safety of MY hero Mr.Grimes.But the courage he shows is overwhelming.He shows no fear and hes all heart when it comes to Lottie and Billy.The Tucket Adventures are great books. I intend to read them all.I just cant seem to stop reading books by Gary Paulsen. He is a great writer.Keep up the GOOD WORK Gary.
