Will James is my favorite cowboy author. His stories are true depictions of "cowboy life" in the early 1900's. The illustrations are amazing, especially since they are his originals. My 7-year-old son and I loved reading this book together.

Good story for kids but of a culture little known outside of modern western ranch kids. May take a lot of explanation to kids.

Format: Hardcover
It's difficult to peg the age range of Will James' Cowboy In The Making: as kindergarten and first grade picturebook readers will find it too hard, but parents may find it just fine for assisted reading. Young readers and those in grades 2-5 will appreciate this story of an orphan boy who develops some unusual friendships in his travels. James' pen and ink drawings and four color paintings enhance this slim book's appeal.
