Get This Cyber Kid a Hat!

Hey, brother readers guys, cyber kid 303 has just sent us a review of The Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones:

The Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones is a good book by HELLEN HEMPHILL! Yes, I did go to her workshop at Imaginon. The book is filled with action and adventure. The story starts when Prometheus Jones and Homer Shine win a horse in a raffle. They got the ticket from LaRue and Pernie Boyd Dill, two dumb rednecks, who said there was no way they were gonna let a black man, even though he was born on the day of the Emancipation Proclamation and was free from his first breath, keep that horse. Prometheus and Omer (that's what they called Homer) then jump on and ride that horse to Texas where they join a cattle drive. Many adventures happen while they drive the cattle to Deadwood in the Dakota Territory. Once they get to Deadwood, those two rednecks show up and accuse Prometheus of stealing the horse. Read the book! Read it!

What did I tell you guys? This IS a terrific book! So do as cyber kid says--"Read the book! Read it!"

Carl
