Overview

When Casey's class begins studying Nomads, he and his best friend Art begin building tents everywhere. They tie their scout neckerchiefs around their heads like Bedouin nomads wearing kaffiyehs. They also prepare to compete in the Scout Olympics. Neither boy is a strong athlete, but Casey's dad is helping him practice for the free-style swimming event.

Then Casey's father is called out of town for work. At first, Casey feels angry his dad broke his promise to help Casey. His father is also sad, but can't leave his assignment writing secret codes for the army. Eventually, Casey learns to draw on his own resources, and practices on his own.

Finally, with his best friend, funny little sister and the words of a mysterious Apron Lady cheering him on, Casey swims the swim of his life.

In the end, his father's job with the army gives Casey's family a chance to travel, to set out on new and exciting adventures across the United States, to become real live nomads.

Editorial Reviews

Christian Science International
Casey is fascinated by nomads. The author skillfully interweaves themes of peer pressure, scouting experiences, and family tension. All falls neatly into place at the end, but there are some imaginative twists and turns along the way.
Mennonite Publishing House Book Review
This is an interesting book, warmly written, that tugs at the reader's heart. The black and white charcoal illustrations effectively portray the feelings of the story. There isn't any spiritual emphasis, but the family works through their problems in a constructive manner.
Book Buzz
A good choice for "first fiction" for beginning readers. Also, it can be used to highlight a father-son relationship. Recommended for 3-6 grades.
Madison Wisconsin T. Glotz
Recommended
The book has an unusual flair--the first and last pages are "copies" of Casey’s report on nomads for school. His sister and best friend play prominent parts in the story, as do his mother and father. There's a happy ending with the nomad concept.
B.J. Standord Lubbock TX
....The story has a happy ending as the family decides to be modern day nomads. Many children can identify with this story.
