Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A fascinating glimpse of a culture most readers will not have heard of.
—Kirkus Reviews

Neri's story is original in theme and inspirational in tone and content.
—Booklist

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Cole has been skipping school so much that he might have to repeat seventh grade. His fed-up mom drives him from Detroit to North Philadelphia to live with the father he's never met. Feeling abandoned, Cole at first struggles to get along with his father. But eventually his dad's vocation as a horse-whispering cowboy—he runs a stable in the inner city, which is a safe haven for local kids—gives them a chance to connect. Cole learns the history of black horsemen and how to live the "Cowboy Way," befriending a horse of his own and joining a fight to save the stable when it's threatened by the city. This well-written book is based on a true story of urban cowboys in Philadelphia and New York. Cole's spot-on emotional insight is conveyed through believable dialogue and the well-paced plot offers information about a little-known aspect of African-American history as well as a portrait of contemporary urban stable life. Watson's illustrations punctuate the intriguing aspects of the story and make the novel more appealing.—Shawna Sherman, Hayward Public Library, CA

    Didnt even read it !

    As soon as I saw this book, it caught my attention! Since I am black, this made me feel a lot more confident about our culture and how it is ok to mix with different things. Again, I didnt read it yet, but so far it's worth a million. :)
