From the Inside Flap:

Kissimmee Pete is a tall tale based on the life of Florida frontier cowboys, or "cracker cow hunters," so called because they used the crack of their whips to scare cows out of the brush. Just like cowboys out West, they rounded up their cattle and drove them to market, encountering unpredictable situations along the way.
In Kissimmee Pete, Cracker Cow Hunter, the tender-hearted, courageous, clever, cracker cow hunter, Kissimmee Pete, his speedy horse Blaze, his dog Mud, and String Bean, his green cow, sing, swim, push, and wrestle their way across grasses, prairies, and lowlands, finally arriving safely at port with their herd.
Filled with word play and an amazing array of adjectives, Kissimmee Pete, Cracker Cow Hunter is a fast-paced adventure that includes encounters with starvin' mosquitoes, hairless bears, gators the size of canoes, and lots of laughs along the way. Yeehaw!
