In the picture book that Booklist says “manifest[s] love and respect for the West and cowboys of color,” celebrated creators Julius Lester and Jerry Pinkney share the true story of Bob Lemmons, a formerly enslaved Black man who became a renowned mustang wrangler.
This collaboration by an award-winning team captures the beauty and the harshness of the frontier, a boundless arena for the struggle between freedom and survival. Julius Lester’s lyrical writing partners perfectly with Jerry Pinkney’s powerful illustrations to tell the true story of Bob Lemmons, a formerly enslaved Black man who rides his horse, Warrior, and hopes to corral a herd of mustangs.
