Texas 1833: A stifling drought threatens to destroy farms, and even families. Dwindling water supplies have driven desperate cattlemen to snip fences in order to water their herds targeting thirteen-year-old Jesse’s farm several times. When a lone drifter arrives in town, he’s quickly hired to work the farm. It should be a relief to have the extra help, but Jesse suspects the man is more than just a hired hand and is determined to uncover his mysterious secret. This Society of School Librarians International Honor Book includes an author’s note and bibliography.
