Description

Twelve-year-old Jimmy Spoon yearns for a life of adventure. So when two Shoshoni boys offer him a horse, Jimmy sneaks away from his family in Salt Lake City to follow the boys. When Jimmy arrives at the Shoshoni camp, he discovers that he is expected to stay--as a member of the tribe!Inspired by the memoirs of a white man who actually lived with Chief Washakie's tribe as a boy in the mid-1800s, "The Legend of Jimmy Spoon" is a compelling coming-of-age adventure.
