Review:
Bob Lemmons, a former slave, was a cowboy with legendary tracking ability. In this spectacular picture book, the reader goes along with Bob and his stallion, Warrior, as he tracks a herd of wild mustangs for days and ultimately brings them back to his ranch. The combination of Lester’s poetic prose and Pinkney’s illustrations makes this a most unusual biography with appeal to a wide range of readers - horse-lovers, history-lovers, naturalists, and lovers of a good story. The pictures of thundering, galloping horses are unmatched.
