Amazon Description

Ned, a young cowboy from the wide open West, proves that home can be anywhere with only the slightest adjustments after he moves to swamp country and has a run-in with the alligators and a western-style showdown with the school bully, Big Head Ed.

One Potato Review

Of a young cowboy’s assimilation in Louisiana swampland, his open hostility toward his mother for moving them there, and the vague and wishful memories of his “wandering daddy” who left him with the assurance that were cowboys out there to watch over him when he sleeps: “They lasso the moon for you when it rises over their heads.” Soulful and satisfying.
