Kissimmee Pete, the cracker cow hunter, is back for another wild adventure. After rounding up a herd of cattle to send to Cuba, Pete and his trusty dog Mud load the herd onto a steamship and watch the ship leave the dock. But only seconds later, there's trouble in store for Pete. A hurricane has blown in, and it's up to the larger than-life cow hunter to save his cattle and stop the storm before it's too late.

From the Publisher:

Praise for "Kissimmee Cracker Cow Hunter: A Tall Tale"

"This story is an excellent compliment to a study on tall tales."
--AKN, The Oneota Reading Journal

From the Inside Flap:

Kissimmee Pete, the famous frontier cowboy called a "cow hunter," has just rounded up a huge herd of wild cattle and sold them for a fortune. Now with his loaded cattle on board a steamship bound for Cuba, Pete is ready to relax and take it easy for a while. But when a hurricane blows ashore, Pete is in for the wildest adventure of his life.

Pitted against the forces of nature, he struggles with gusting winds to round up his scattered cattle. The waves are licking the sky, and the wind is blowing so hard that it whips a spot from the back of a wild cow and smacks it on the side of Green Bean, Pete's pet cow. When a strong gust blows Pete's herd across Lake Okeechobee, he and his animal friends have to round up the cows again and lasso up the hurricane before it creates more chaos.

Full of clever word play and witty descriptions that roll off the tongue, Kissimmee Pete and the Hurricane follows in the spirit of Paul Bunyan and Pecos Bill and turns Pete into a legend no cracker cow hunter could ever forget.

Jan Day lives in Okeechobee, Florida, surrounded by the ranches and prairies where she set Kissimmee Pete, Cracker Cow Hunter, her first adventure with Pete. Day is also the author of The Pirate, Pink and Pirate Pink and Treasures of the Reef, both published by Pelican. Also a writer of published poetry and short fiction, Day offers writing workshops for schoolchildren and participates in a variety of children's publishing panels. Her first children's book, The Pirate, Pink, was selected for the Children's Book Council's Children's Choices 2002 program.

Janeen Mason is the illustrator of three other books with Jan Day: The Pirate, Pink; Pirate Pink and Treasures of the Reef; and Kissimmee Pete's first adventure, Kissimmee Pete, Cracker Cow Hunter. An award-winning artist, Mason is a popular speaker at schools, libraries, and conferences, and she exhibits her art nationwide. She is also the author and illustrator of Ocean Commotion: Sea Turtles, which has been called a "visually stunning sea turtle odyssey" by the president of the Ocean Research & Conservation Association. Mason lives in Stuart, Florida.
