More About This Book

Overview

Jimmy Sterling may be only fourteen, but in his heart he knows that the hope for his family's future rests squarely on his shoulders. Barely a year since his father's death, and he has watched his mother's daily struggles to provide for him and his disabled sister fall far short. Even the help of his uncle hasn't kept the Sterling family from sliding to the edge of financial disaster and an uncertain future. Jimmy has a plan he is sure will work. He will hire himself out as a hand on the world's longest sheep drive, where he is certain he will earn a "man's wages." There are a few problems with his plan, however. The trail drive has already begun. Traveling alone on foot through the rugged Arizona mountain terrain, will he be able to find them? Will they even hire a boy of fourteen, a boy with limited outdoor experience who has never even worked with sheep? Set in the wild and beautiful Southwest in the 1950s, Jimmy's quest is filled with adventure and challenges that push him to the limits physically and will change him forever. Succeed or fail? One thing is certain-Jimmy Sterling's life will never be the same!
