The story is very good, but I did not like reading the book I found that there were several words that I did not understand which made it difficult This is a story about a young boy, Pedro, who is sent out into the desert with an old sheep herder named Old Ramon Pedro s father thinks that it is very important for his son to learn about the family business from the ground up As Pedro and Old Ramon spend time together tending the sheep, young Pedro learns a lot from the old man about life, respon [...]

Well, this was a nice story as far as it went It seemed to end abruptly and have no point A young boy, the sheepowner s son, makes a journey with Old Ramon, the sheepherder, to bring the flock to their summer pasture I guess this was supposed to be a coming of age story, but it seemed to just fizzle out I did enjoy the way Schaefer depicted Old Ramon s speech, but I couldn t tell from it whether Old Ramon was Hispanic, as his name suggests, or Native American, or both I can t imagine why this wa [...]

3 1 2 Cute story I liked it Gotta love lopsided fire breathing bulls

There are actually only two human characters in this book, but the evocative and deeply felt storytelling of Ramon about the people who have been most important in his life sure makes it feel like Old Ramon is the story of an old sheep herder named Ramon and the young son of the patr n for whom he works The boy has been receiving the benefits of a modern education in a conventional school, a luxury that Ramon never had when he was growing up, yet the boy s father makes a point of of sending his [...]

Old Ramon is a shepherd with a crooked nose it was probably broken at some point and a knife cut scar on one edge of his mouth He has clearly learned some hard lessons throughout his long life He has learned about true friendship, the lack of intelligence of sheep, the value of a smart sheep dog, and his connection to the natural world of the Mojave Desert He has cared for many herds of sheep in his long life.In this book, Old Ramon and a boy drive a herd of sheep across the desert toward the fe [...]

Every so often, I read a children s book, just because This one has been in my shelf for a while, snagged at a used book store out of my love for Shane and Monte Walsh The rhythmic, running on voice of Jack Schaefer is immediately recognizable in this little story He uses repetition of words and phrases to create a rugged poetry and he manages to stir emotion for the Old West in a carefully placed adjective here and there, like the brave circle of light from Ramon and the boy s fire.This doesn t [...]

KIRKUS REVIEWFor the young reader the combination of an old man, a boy, and a dog are almost irresistible, particularly when the old man is as wise and gentle as Old Ramon In this story of a boy s apprenticeship with Ramon the shepherd, a dog is given as a present to the boy When the dog dies protecting the flock against a wolf, he is grieved, but Ramon softens his loss with the promise of a new pet and the assurance that the dead animal has died valiantly Basically the plot of this story consis [...]

This is a story about an old sheep herder who is taking a young boy out to care for the flock in the summer for the first time It tells of lessons learned, crossing a stream, finding water, dealing with the coyote and the wolf, and dealing with death and the trading of a sheep dog.I found this book to be very random in the parts that make it up, and it didn t seem that there was an overall theme or purpose at times I suppose it would just be the growing up and lessons learned by the boy.I might [...]

Pretty good YA novel about an old sheepherder, a young boy learning the trade, and two sheepdogs Short but sweet I think I would have complained if I was forced to read this in elementary school, but I really enjoyed it now I like the outdoors and dogs, but not necessarily sheep I picked this up at a yard sale Saturday and read it in a couple of hours.

Short Okay

Rated PG.

Quite a lot is packed into this short read about sheep herding as the old man teaches the young boy his knowledge.

Josh and I read this lesser known Newbery Honor 1961 book together, about a wise old shepherd, the little boy he s training, and 2 faithful dogs Sweet book but not great.
