Product Details


Review, Booklist, October 15, 2010:
“This title, illustrated in realistic, appealing oil paintings and spare, well-paced prose, conveys a sense of the Old West—not the rush for riches but the open trail and the warm details of daily activity. …[C]hildren will eagerly follow Dorsey as he travels the trails alone, with mailbags buckled onto his furry back.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2010:
“Readers should enjoy—and be enlightened by—this delightful sidebar to California history.”

Review, Modern Dog, Winter 2010/2011 issue:
“Adam Gustavson’s delightful images ensure readers both young and old will enjoy this tale that illustrates the important roles dogs can play in our lives.”
