Product Description

Drawing on real-life cowboy tales, G.A. Henty transports young readers back to the early days of America's frontier with a narrative that's as exciting as it is educational. In this "fiercely accurate" adventure, young Hugh Tunstall travels from England to the American West where he experiences firsthand the lawlessness of the Far West. Hugh finds work on a cattle ranch, encounters hostile Indians, and chases kidnappers. The absorbing narrative also offers authentic accounts of mining camps, lumberjacking, cattle ranching and rapping, with some riveting gunfights, wildfires, horse races, roundups and daring rescues! Recommended for all ages.
