Publisher's Summary

"Send Us a Boy, We'll Send You a Cowboy!" is the slogan of the Box Canyon Boys Camp. But for the nail biters, thumb suckers, and teeth grinders, the cast-away offspring of parents who are busy traveling, being divorced, remarrying, and garnering fortunes, it's just another place to face rejection. Until Cotton.

Cotton pulls them together. In a hot-wired pickup, he leads "the Bedwetters" on a fantastic mission to save a heard of buffalo, and in the process, to save themselves. But as the raw red Arizona sun rises, they will discover the cost of their one grand moment of glory.

Great to read to children tweens & teens

Would you listen to Bless the Beasts and Children again? Why?

Yes, it's a great book on its own merit, & a great book to read to children especially ones w/ possible troubles, to relate. This can be reading a chapter a night, nice large print, fast chapters & a GREAT story to learn from & share with information to help guide them to the 'right' actions.
