The Shepherd Boy
Each summer Ben cares for his family's sheep. He and his two dogs lead them across the mesa, through a canyon, to a secret spring, where grass grows. But one evening one lamb is missing and Ben has to race the terrors of nightfall to rescue it. The spare beauty of Navajo country comes alive in poetic story, illustrated with full-color paintings.
