By Gary Paulsen
Imagine you had to spend the whole summer alone, well maybe not exactly; you have to take care of 6,000 sheep, 2 horses, and 4 dogs. This is what John Barron has to do when his father has to take his best friend, Tink, to the hospital when he gets a cancer in his brain. John's father would usually take care of the sheep and the dogs in the Haymeadow, but with Tink in the hospital and all. John had to do it, with only one tip from his father's friend Cawley, "Keep a horse at hand" John encounters many obstacles during that summer. You'll just have to read the book to find out!
I have read a lot of Gary Paulsen's books and The Haymeadow was on of the best, it was pretty interesting I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure books; I strongly recommend any one of Gary Paulsen's books, especially the Brian books (Hatchet, Brian's winter, The river, Brian's return and Brian's hunt. They're also very interesting.
This book is one of the many great adventure books that Gary Paulsen has written in his
many years. He has one of the most interesting lives I've ever heard of. This boy's life
lies on a farm. His family are sheep herders, every year they drive them out to a pasture
to spend the summer. This summer the usual guy gets sick and the boy must drive the
sheep. He packs up his wagon and gets ready to leave. Find out what happens next by
reading the Haymeadow by Gary Paulsen. This is a great book 4.5 stars. I recommend
this book to 5th to 8th grade kids
