This hilarious interpretation of a classic American folk song gives children a wonderfully realistic look at life in the old West. Using the words of the song as text, the book charts the adventures of a few cowhands and a lot of cattle as they make their way up the Old Chisholm Trail from Texas to Kansas. Roz Schanzer’s delightful illustrations will keep readers laughing and learning from cover to cover as they see the cowpokes deal with dust, flies, bad food, hail, stampedes, and even treacherous outlaws! As a final treat, the music is included at the end of the book, so kids can enjoy singing the song again and again!
