Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

“A well-crafted, entertaining read …” -- Kirkus Reviews

Review

ForeWord 5 Star Review:  "Sedwick...creates authentic moments thatshowcase the American West in the 1930s. The time, place, and spirit of the erabecome as large a part of the novel as the characters, and are equallysignificant.... This is no heavy-handed historical novel. Rather, young readerswill be drawn into an engaging story that broaches serious questions aboutfamily, the American spirit, and hope. There is the potential for its audienceto get so much from the book that it could easily be used in a classroom toprompt discussion." 

Publishers Weekly:  "Out in the grass, a coyote pup ran incircles. All around him, he sensed fear. It wasn't snow, for the day was hot.It wasn't rain, for his tongue was dry. It wasn't darkness, for the sun glowedas red as blood." With this understated description, Sedwick lays thegroundwork for an absorbing novel. In the western prairie circa 1930,13-year-old Myles brings a coyote pup home in an attempt to tame it and keep itas a pet. Taming the untamable quickly becomes a theme as his father strugglesto fight the growing drought that is wreaking havoc with his crops. Sedwick'sprose is simple, but possesses an underlying beauty that captures the world inwhich her story takes place. The narrative soon shifts to the 21st century, asMyles's grandson Andy struggles to find a way to keep his grandfather's storiesof the prairie alive. While Sedwick's novel is geared toward teenagers, itshould also appeal to adults, particularly those interested in recent Americanhistory.
