Rawhide Robinson Rides the Range
Have you ever wished that you could swing up into a saddle and ride the trail behind a herd of longhorns? Here’s your chance. In Rawhide Robinson Rides the Range, Rod Miller, previous winner of the Spur Award, takes readers on a cattle drive from Texas to Dodge City, Kansas. You couldn’t ask for a better guide than Rawhide Robinson. Though Robinson is introduced as an ordinary cowboy, he has ridden western trails for years; through floods, stampedes, across the Pacific… That’s right, Rawhide Robinson once rode a horse to Hawaii, and he delights in pulling your leg as he tells you all about it.
Miller presents young adults with beloved cattle drivin’ tall tales in an entertaining collection. Readers will get a good taste of cowboy life and the dangers of the trail, as well as Robinson’s wit and experiences. Some might get a little weary of one young cowboy’s $#%! bad language (not explicitly rendered), but he comes to appreciate Rawhide Robinson’s wisdom and enjoy his tales, and so will readers who love western yarns.
