Knowing only a tad about cowboys, this story brought it all to life. From the first sentence to the last, Watson gives us the true grit of what it was like to be a newby cowboy and all the trials associated with it. It was not like on the old movies where they always looked clean and the trail was fun. This was Watson’s great-grandfather and was based on his journal. What an adventure for a fifteen-year-old young man. I highly recommend this for anyone, but especially for young people twelve and ...more

What I enjoyed most about this historical book about the adventures of the author's grandfather was the factual information about how cowboys lived on the trail. This book will be a treasure to the author's family generations from now. It's monumental the amount of famous Western pioneers--good and bad--that Kid Clay met and worked with.

Note to young people for book reports: This book is a fast read, and accessible for MG readers, ages 8 and up.
