This is the first book in the Jimmy Spoon series of Western stories for middle readers.
A good story with adventure, realistic plot, and even true love. All in an exciting and quick moving telling.
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.
