Synopses & Reviews
The cowboy isn't well. He should have spent the night in town, when he stopped to buy the burnished silver bridle -- a gift for the boy waiting for him at the ranch below Lone Pine Ridge. But he didn't, and now he's too far out on the range to turn back. As his horse finds her way across the frozen landscape, he slips in and out of a feverish sleep -- and ultimately falls from his saddle into the snow. It will take a miracle for him to make it home safe and sound.
Sometimes a miracle
needs a helping hand.
The one thing Evan knows is that every year since his pa died, Cully has arrived at the ranch below Lone Pine Ridge by Christmas Eve. But this year, something's not right. It's late in the evening, and still no Cully. Evan's mother tries to assure him that the cowboy's all right -- that he will show up tomorrow, or the next day. But the boy refuses to stop looking out for his friend.
Come let best-selling author Audrey Wood and acclaimed illustrator Robert Florczak transport you to the spectacular, yet harsh, landscape of the pioneer West, where a cowboy's shimmering act of generosity and a boy's tenacious faith will make possible the miracle at Lone Pine Ridge.
