Johnny “Preacher” Wilcox never expected to be “man of the farm” at the age of twelve. Faced with a broken tractor, wheat land to plow, and the mysterious disappearance of the farm’s water supply, he must solve a truckload of problems. To top it off, he may lose his best friend, Earl Floyd.
The characters in this book truly came to life. The story of life in a time that was challenging for everyone, including young boys.
Cheryl Schuermann has brought Preacher's story to life, making his journey appealing to young readers while depicting historical events that they should know about.
This is a lovely book. Highly recommend!
