This is probably one of the best of the Tintin books. Tintin and Snowy make many daring captures,escapes, and have some startling twists to the story(as usual). This IS one of the Captain Haddock-less stories, so it is somwhat less colorful than some of the others, oh well.

This is the first of the readily available Tintins-and it shows. At this stage it's still very much a kid's cartoon, with none of the subtext, irony and clever quirks that make the later ones great, and resorts too often to cliche. (Luckily that would be overcome in the next two...) Herge's American setting is two-dimensional and typical, as could be dreamed up by any eight-year old who's been to the movies. It also complicates an issue that the jury's still out on: Can people hear Snowy talk?- Here Tintin seems to have a conversation with him, while in later stories, it would be more of an aside to the reader... I think the blandness of our hero is partly to blame: he needs his supporting cast, such as the Thom(p)sons, and you know who... It's fun to read, but I would hesitate to call it a classic, or on par with the others.

Tintin arrives in America to round up a large organisation of criminals, but when one escapes him, the Big Boss, Tintin really goes out to round him up - with a lasso. The boss is hiding out West. Tintin and the boss have equal determination to get the other one behind bars, and the chase takes Tintin all over the country. This isn't the best of the Tintin books; even so, I would recommend it highly.
