Reviews - What do our customers think?
the journal of joshua loper  Apr 17, 2005
Wow! If you're looking for a Wild West book, this is the one. I'm sure you'll love how the story leads off, and how it ends. This story begins when a teenager reaches the age to go on a cattle trip, and is totally psyched, but did not know what was In store for him. What he learns is
This is also a very touching, and emotional story, but Joshua puts it together perfectly. The part in this story that I liked the most was when they reached a town called; Abilence. Abilence is a rough town where you're sure to get in a fight ,and you wont be disappointed! Joshua goes through some rough times but makes it through the whole trip. I give this book a 5 out of 5.

The Journal of Joshua Loper   Mar 25, 2005
This is a story about an adventurous 16 year old boy. He is a boy who wants to have more adventure. A coincidence was that he got to go on the Chisholm Trail. He worked as a cowboy. The Chisholm Trail is from Texas to Abilene,Kansas. Once a boy goes on the trail he become a man. What will the hardships be for Joshua? To find out you should read this book.
Joshua Loper Reveiw  May 5, 2004
This story is based after the civil war. Joshua and Doom are the only black people on the herd. They start out in the very back at drags but joshua moves to the front when one man slips up. There are some you could say sad parts like when joshuas horse dies but there are some good parts like when he is asked to go on another trail from texas to oregon.
The Black Cowboy  Dec 19, 2002
Joshua Loper and seven others are driving a herd. Joshua is pushed harder by the captain of the drive because of his race.In the end Joshua is one of the best known herders and in the end gets paid the most money because of his hardwork. The captain and Joshua have more respect for one another at the end of their trip.
I have two opinions about the book good opinion it is very discriptive well written, exciting, and enjoyable. Another opinion is the rambledon and on about things I thought were less interesting to me
OKAY BUT NOT GREAT!  Apr 26, 2002
I read all of this MY NAME IS AMERICA book. But like some of the other books in this series, it lacked excitement, suspense, and was not entirely accurate. I did not feel that the book was written by a 16 yr. old cowboy, though it kept my interest and gives children a feeling of what it was like to live in the 19th century. Much better and more accurate historical novels are THE JOURNEY OF LEROY JONES, A FUGITIVE SLAVE and THE DIARY OF A SLAVE GIRL, RUBY JO.
