As a storm looms in the prairie sky, a boy must ride out to find his wayward younger brother, Will. He dons his red serge coat and stetson hat, saddles up and begins the search. ""You can't hide from a Mountie,"" he calls, but Will roams far, eluding him as the storm closes in. The storm threatens, the older boy searches, confident and determined, the younger boy wanders, oblivious to all but his own delight.

Anne Laurel Carter is a multi-award-winning author of books for children, including Under the Prairie Sky (Orca 2004). When she's not writing, she's reading. Anne lives in Toronto, Ontario, where she works full-time as a teacher-librarian.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-A Canadian boy plans to be a Mountie someday. When he has to find his younger brother before a fierce storm arrives, he has a glimpse of what this life might entail. On his trusty horse, he rides through the fields and valleys until he finds Will catching frogs in a muddy stream. Together they race the storm until they are safely back home. The future Mountie has performed his duty well and, as the day ends, he brushes Bess and checks on his soundly sleeping little brother one more time. Beautiful watercolor illustrations fill the pages as they capture the golden hues of the prairie and the ferocious darkness of the storm. They illuminate the action and provide insight into the lives of the characters in details such as the oil lamps, the water basin for washing, and the tin drinking cup. Some wildlife is also represented, including a prairie dog, a coyote, and a heron. The text has a poetic ring but may be a bit daunting to many young readers and listeners as they try to determine the meanings of stook, coulee, and slough. This is a gentle story, set against a dramatic and interesting backdrop, about an older boy's sense of responsibility and his affection for his younger sibling.
