Publisher's Summary

It is 1848, and Francis Tucket is heading west on the Oregon Trail with his family. Yesterday he celebrated his 14th birthday on the tailgate of a Conestoga wagon in the foothills of the Rockies. Today, he is going to practice with his new birthday present, a Lancaster rifle. Falling far behind the wagon train, Francis loses sight of his family and is kidnapped by Pawnee Indians. Saved by a one-armed mountain man named Mr. Grimes, Francis takes off with his rescuer on a wild adventure peopled by actual historical characters, including Jim Bowie, and set against an historically-accurate background of the Old West.

    "Boy coming-of-age on the frontier"
    Where does Mr. Tucket rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent book. Easy to listen to, and I wanted to continue reading it!


    What other book might you compare Mr. Tucket to and why?

    Hatchet, but not as long.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The trapper and the main character are riding their horses in a snowstorm, and they are kept warm at night by the horses in a circle in the snow.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    Great for anyone who likes to read about the American frontier, trapping, hunting, and the Native Americans.
