About the Author:

Audrey Wood is the author of more than two dozen books for children, including Red Racer, which she wrote and illustrated; King Bidgood's in the Bathtub (a Caldecott Honor book) and The Napping House, both of which she created with her husband, Don. She and Robert Florczak also collaborated on The Rainbow Bridge, which was an American Bookseller Pick of the List. Audrey was inspired to write A Cowboy Christmas by her research into numerous diaries and journals describing firsthand accounts of life in the American West. She lives with Don in Santa Barbara, California.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Reading like a script for a 1950s-era TV Western, this attractive book contains some unfortunate flaws. Every year since Evan's pa died, Cully, who was the man's best friend, has come to spend the winter helping the boy and his mother work their ranch. This year, stopping for Evan's Christmas present, a "burnished silver bridle," has made him late, and illness causes the cowboy to fall from his horse. Evan concludes that Cully is in danger, convinces his mother to ride out with him in the snowy night, and finds him on Lone Pine Ridge. After a long recuperation, Cully makes plans to go but Evan asks him to stay, marry his mother, and become his father. All ends happily with the new family celebrating a cowboy Christmas under the stars. Cully's trail tales and Florczak's evocative, romanticized oil paintings are the high points in this predictably plotted story. However, depicting a regular leather bridle instead of a "burnished silver" one and several clich‚d statements like, "He may not make it, son," are disappointing.-L. F.
