Customer Reviews

  A great western for young people & winner of several awards!

This is a timeless story by the author of "Shane". "Old Ramon" centers on a wise older shepherd, a young boy, and two brave dogs. Ramon teaches the boy, who is the son of his patron, how to care for a herd in the harsh terrain of the desert. The boy learns about sheep and sandstorms, rattlesnakes and wolves; he also learns about friendship and loss, bravery and cool-headed wisdom. Set in the Old West, where the cultures of Mexico and Southern California converge, "Old Ramon" offers both a journey back to the adventures of the past and a universal story of growing up. Has nice drawings too.
