Kindergarten-Grade 2-- With quiet prose, Johnston tells of the special relationship between an elderly farmer and a young neighbor. Through the narrative, the labor and concerns of ranch life are described--mending fences, treating injured Herefords, and assisting in difficult calvings--although not in great detail. Central to the story is Mr. Gates's recounting of a boyhood memory and an old promise that he fulfills in the satisfying conclusion. Keavney's illustrations of landscapes and farm buildings are more skilled than those of people and animals. Overall, the book is gentle, if plain. --Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, WI
