Twelve-year-old Jimmy Spoon yearns for the life of adventure he is certain a horse would bring. So when two Shoshoni boys offer him a horse on condition he ride with them to their camp, Jimmy sneaks away from his family in Salt Lake City to follow the boys. But the journey is harder and much longer than he imagined, and when Jimmy arrives at the Shoshoni camp he discovers that he is expected to stay -- as the son of the chief's mother!

Inspired by the memoirs of a white man who actually lived with Chief Washakie's tribe as a boy in the mid 1800s, The Legend of Jimmy Spoon is a compelling tale of adventure and coming of age.

This is the first book in the Jimmy Spoon series of Western stories for middle readers.

I read this book as research, but found it very enjoyable. It seemed to present the Indians realistically, even though the story is fiction. I think boys about 10 to 12 would enjoy this story very much. there was nothing objectionalbe in the book.
