A tall tale based on the life of the frontier cowboy, or "cow hunter," as they are called in Florida, this book is full of sassy word play and cracklin' adjectives. Follow Kissimmee Pete, a velvet-voiced, gator-wrestlin, stinky, tender-hearted, clever cracker cow hunter as he gets himself a herd as big as the sky. This colorful picture book is a real kick to read aloud!
