Released in November of 2020, The Cowboy is a coming-of-age story about a ten-year-old boy named Bobby growing up in southern California in 1970. The turmoil in his home and in the outside world makes Bobby wish for the simpler times he sees depicted in his favorite Westerns. When Bobby’s dog, Junior, gets in trouble, Bobby hits the trail with him, calculating that hightailing it to Mexico will save Junior from the pokey. His plans for freedom are sidetracked when a man with a grudge tracks him down.
The Cowboy is a good read for adults and contains material suitable for kids, but because of adult themes, parental guidance is suggested for kids under twelve years old.
