The River of Cattle
by Alice V. Brock
Will Whitaker's eleventh summer is one thrill after another. A cattle drive with a famous Texas Ranger, a Comanche trying to steal his horse, a buffalo stampede, thirst-maddened cattle crossing eighty miles of alkali desert to a dangerous ford on the Pecos River—it's almost more than Will can endure. He works as a drover, riding his best friend Buck, a big buckskin stallion. Danger is everywhere.
