Justin learns about the racist acts endured by black cowboys of the past during a summer on Grandpa's ranch. He also sees that even Grandpa makes his own bed, bakes and takes charge of the same daily household chores Justin used to hate doing when his mother said he had to. Typical stereotypes of today's males and females dissolve for Justin in this relatively easy to read novel about family ties, family heritage and black history in Kansas ranch country. Black and white pencil drawings illustrate the book. (Ages 7-12)
