We follow a young man that joins up with another after a cattle drive in Nebraska that came from Texas. His name is Leroy. The man that helps him and join him is named Johnny B. We follow them as they had North and somewhat West.
We learn about the lives a bit and nature though out the book. We go on trails and adventures with them both. It fun to see where they go and what they experience. They even meet up with a lady named Alice. They seem to want to help folks and find there their own way in the world.
We learn about Leroy past and a little bit of Johnny B's. You will surprised at the end as to who Leroy's father is? I can not tell you as it would be a bummer and spoiler. What would do if you are treated as a slave but find out something socking about your parents? I wondered why Leroy was able to get a education along with the master's son? Did he know that he had a brother or not?
The author does so well with story that you want to go along for the ride. I enjoyed it and would like read more by this author. He talented. He put me in the era that his story was telling. It was nice going across the west by horseback and being able to visualize the USA West as I was reading.
