A great weatern read
Mr.Tucket (Francis)is about a kid who gets kidnapped by Indians and after living with them for a while gets rescued by a guy who looks like a mountain man (Mr. Grimes) .Francis and Mr. grime start to head toward Organ because that¿s where his family is. They ride many nits and day and stop and visit Mr. Grime¿s friends. During the river they stay in a valley along a bunch of beaver ponds and they trap beaver, to find out more about this book you can read it. I like how Mr. Tucket and Mr. Grimes are always riding and they don¿t stop for nothing not even food they just plan to stop somewhere and don¿t stop in till they get there. I also like how Mr. Grimes pushes Mr. Tucket as hard as he can to try to turn Mr. Tucket into a man. I don¿t like how when Mr. Grimes is talking to the Indians he had to tell Mr. Tucket what they said and if it has to do with Mr.Tucket he has to tell the Indians what Mr.Tucket said. This book is part of the Tucket series written by Gary Paulsen. Mr.Tucket is the first books in the sires followed by call me Francis Tucket , and then Tucket ride. This book reminds me of westerns. It reminds me of westerns because in the book they always ride on horses and are always wearing fur coats and clothing like in westerns and they go through towns and they are always fighting lie in westerns. Anyone who likes hunting, trapping, riding horses, fighting, and the out doors would like this book.

Mr. Tucket Review
'From now on, he thought, if that man says up is down and day is night, I'll believe him. Anybody who can make a shot like that, timing it to go off at the same time as another rifle, and hit a running antelope at two-no, three hundred yards, can't be wrong.' That was a quote from Mr. Tucket that told of Mr. Grimes,a one-armed mountain man, who shot a running antelope at three hundred yards. This is what happened, Mr Grimes told Francis Tucket to go down a cliff to shoot a antelope, and that's when Francis shot the antelope. Well, that's what Fancis thought he had done, this is what really happened, Francis had missed when he shot at the antelope, but Mr. Grimes, from three hundreds yards away, shot the antelope between the eyes right when Francis shot his rifle. In this book Francis is left behind his wagon train to Oregon while he was practicing with the new rifle he got for his birthday. While he was practicing he got so carried away that he didn't pay attention to the Pawnees that took him prisoner at their camp. While he was there, he was treated like dirt. Every time a Pawnee passed him he was either spit on or kicked. That was until a one-armed mountain man named, Mr. Grimes, showed up and both of them escaped the Pawnee camp.After that Francis and Mr. Grimes go on many exciting adventures, and try to survive dangerous indians, winter, and starvation. I liked this book because it made you want to keep reading and reading. The author, Gary Paulsen, wrote so much suspense in each ending of the chapters that you wanted to find whats next.He also kept the story fresh and not boring by going on and on about the same thing for so long. The best part was that he had a lat of surprises in his book. I would like to reccomend this book to anybody who likes adventure, suspense, and suprises all mixed into one.Was this review helpful?
