Audience: 5th Grade - 7th Grade
When Nate's leg is crushed under a wagon he can no longer help his father on their farm. He feels even worse when his father brings Worth, an orphan boy, home to help with the chores while Nate has to go to school. Nate's frustrations with book learning and Worth's clumsiness at farm chores make them resent each other more and more as time passes. There is, however, a battle brewing between ranchers and farmers for land, and Nate and Worth are forced to put their differences aside. Can a cripple and a city boy do anything against the fence cutters? You'll have to read to find out!
