Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A genial old-time buckaroo conducts a horseback tour through cattle country. PW said Scott's text "succinctly captures the laconic speaking rhythms and distinctive jargon of her subject," while the full-spread watercolor art "conveys the spectrum of Southwestern scenery." Ages 5-8. Mar.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
In the guise of an old cowhand explaining the art of his craft to an aspiring youngster, Ann Herbert Scott describes life in Cowboy Country. Though "...trucks and tractors (now) do the work...and home computers keep the records straight," the buckaroo reflects, many things will always be the same, "...knowing what an old cow is thinking before she knows herself..., " for example. And he'd do it all over again, if he could. Ms. Scott's words ring true, inspired, as they were, by interviews with old-time buckaroos. Ted Lewin's brilliant paintings bring them to life.
