    Riding the range

    Ride a Shadowed Trail is extremely evocative of time and place. You can almost taste the dust and hear the longhorns lowing. The characters are likeable, and make you genuinely care what happens to them. The author obviously did her research, and weaves the history into the story deftly.

    Thumbs Up!

    When 8 year old Josh Ryder¿s mother is murdered, the boy must overcome the odds to survive in the Texas frontier. His life is shaped by an old veteran cowboy, Pete Waters and a neighboring family of Hispanics. Determined to track down the mysterious stranger who murdered his mother, and wondering about his father, Josh sets out at the tender age of 18 on a cattle drive. The trail turns deadly and Josh faces misery, hardship and heartbreak as he delves into his mother¿s shadowed past to discover an ironic ending. ¿Ride a Shadowed Trail¿ by Eunice Boeve is a gentle and interesting ¿coming of age story¿ highly recommended for young adult readers. My 15 year-old son gave it all-thumbs-up! And we all know that is a fantastic endorsement because 15 year-old boys are all thumbs!

    An Authentic Western

    Young Josh Ryder is orphaned at the age of eight and taken in by Pete Waters, a good-hearted old cowboy who treats Josh like the son he never had and teaches him the cowboy trade. As Josh becomes a teenager, he is driven to not only find out who his real father was, but to find and bring to justice the outlaw who murdered his young mother. When Pete dies, Josh has nothing to stop him, except experience.<BR/><BR/>Ride a Shadowed Trail is a young man's quest to unveil the truth of his past regardless of what he might discover. In this action-packed journey, the lessons of life and love are oftentimes learned the hard way, and as Josh becomes a man of integrity and worth, he discovers that blood is NOT always thicker than water. The reader will be thoroughly engaged by the story's authenticity. The author writes with emotion, clarity, and a true knowledge and understanding of the era that can only come from someone whose roots are in the West.
