He wanted to be treated like a man, not a child. Every summer the men of the Chavez family go on a long and difficult sheep drive to the mountains. All the men, that is, except for Miguel. All year long, twelve-year-old Miguel tries to prove that he, too, is up to the challenge'that he, too, is up to the challenge'that he, too is ready to take the sheep into his beloved Sangre de Cristo Mountains. When his deeds go unnoticed, he prays to San Ysidro, the saint for farmers everywhere. And his prayer is answered . . . but with devastating consequences. When you act like and adult but get treated like a child, what else can you do but keep your wishes secret and pray that they'll come true. This is the story of a twelve-year-old Miguel Chavez, who yearns in his heart to go with the men of his family on a long and hard sheep drive to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains--until his prayer is finally answered, with a disturbing and dangerous exchange.

Lovely coming-of-age tale told from the perspective of a 12 year old Hispanic boy living in rural New Mexico. I appreciated how the culture was portrayed without getting too detailed, so it didn't slow down the story. ( )

Miguel is a 12-year-old boy in a family with a long history of sheep raising in New Mexico. He longs more than anything else to be taken with the adult men in the family to herd the sheep up into the mountains for the summer months, when he's out of school and it's too hot for the sheep at home. His father however thinks he is still too young. On the day that honors the patron saint of sheep farmers, Miguel asks the saint to make it so he goes into the mountains. Soon after, his father tells him he will be joining them, but when Miguel finds out why his father changed his mind, he is horrified that his wish to the saint caused this to happen.
One of those old fashioned Newbery winners that probably wouldn't hold the interest of today's kids much, but it isn't a bad book. But it is slow moving, and has almost no focus on friendship, and only minimal focus on family. The themes are a boy longing to be considered a man, and what faith and prayer can accomplish and what they can't. And maybe a touch of "be careful what you wish for."
(Side note: The original publication's cover and illustrations by Jean Charlot seem to bend over backwards to make this look like the most boring book on earth.) ( )
