"Lawson avoids both cutesiness and the feel of a vanity project, focusing on the simple pleasures of hard work and a job well done. The seriousness with which the book takes Tex's role on the ranch validates children's dreams and ambitions." —Publishers Weekly (August 22, 2011)
"This ode to the range emphasizes the enduring allure of the American West." Kirkus Reviews (September 2011)
