Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones, The (p)
"[An] emotion-filled, memorable novel."
—The Horn Book
"Hemphill’s convincing vernacular narration and well-researched, hard-bitten details of life in the South and on the western range give this adventure story surprising depth. The fast-paced plot, punctuated by Prometheus’s astonishing wins and losses, will lasso readers’ interest."
—School Library Journal
