Product Description

Set in 1910, this urban reverie will resonate with contemporary readers. When Ben moves with his family from a ranch in the West to New York City, he finds himself desperately lonely. He mourns the loss of his beloved plains and his dreams of becoming a cowboy. Until, that is, he hears about the Tenth Avenue Cowboys, city cowboys who ride through the streets warning citizens of approaching trains. Allowed to ride with one of the cowboys, Ben is back in his element. He still misses the plains, but he rediscovers enough of what he loves to enable him to reclaim his dreams and make peace with his new home. Farnsworth's muted oil paintings bestow a dreamy, nostalgic quality on carefully rendered scenes of early-20th-century New York. All told, this offering has the feel of a tale that has been passed down from generation to generation, based in truth but lovingly polished until the rougher parts are smoothed over and the magic in it shines.

    This book is a captivating story, content and picture wise, about an interesting part of early 20th century America. It sure brought awareness of cowboy history to my attention!

    ? The only possible concern is in the last paragraph, depending on a person's viewpoint in a reference to magic. "An than magic happened: Ben's white horse seemed to glow in the moonlight., and the city felt warm and familiar."

    As we are very conservative with our selection of material for our church's Children's Selection, we chose not to add this book into our church library.

    As a homeschool Mom, I'd recommend this book as a wonderful addition for American history and/or specifically New York. Overall I give this a great thumbs up!
