Together, a boy and his grandfather — his Abuelo, ride horses, go camping, and even face a mountain lion. When the boy’s family moves from the countryside where Abuelo lives, to the city, the boy discovers that his memories help him adjust and sustain him. Incredible illustrations illuminate how a bond between two people can reach across time and miles.
"The lessons learned on the open plains help the young boy come to feel at home in the city – laughing when he feels fear, standing strong against a bully and finding comfort in gazing at the city stars. This book succeeds at both specificity and universality, presenting the distinct culture of the gaucho cowboy and the plains of South America through a story that will resonate broadly with many children and families." —Kirkus
