From School Library Journal:

Old-fashioned values permeate this realistic story. Tres Bomer, 13, and his ne'er-do-well father, Junior, live on Senior's--his grandfather's--Texas ranch. Conscious of Junior's failures in life, Tres yearns for success in the roping arena. He wants to sell a soon-to-calve heifer for a good horse, but his grandfather makes him earn his dream: Tres must ride herd on the heifer and the rest of the stock astride a comical mule. He stubbornly proves his worth despite his friends' scorn, nurses the heifer through snakebite and birthing, and gets the horse he covets. Junior, meanwhile, succeeds in starting his own business. Like S. E. Hinton's Tex (Delacorte, 1979), this story shows how a teen must balance the demands of ranching with his developing maturity and his social relationships. Family dynamics and Tres' persistence in following his dream will maintain readers' attention. --Charlene Strickland, formerly at Albuquerque Public Library , NM
