Finally, Tyler has his very own pair of shiny, new cowboy boots for the annual cattle drive up at Uncle Roy's ranch. As the only city kid on the trail, he's hoping his new boots will help make a good impression. But between keeping the cattle on the trail, moving against the fierce heat, and taking care of a mischievous young calf, no one notices Tyler's new boots. By the time the cattle drive is over, Tyler's boots have stomped through brush, been soaked in the river, and waded through mud. Though at first Tyler's disappointed that his boots are a mess, he soon learns that it's not what you wear, but how you handle yourself, that makes the best impression. This charged western adventure is perfect for cowboys, or cowgirls, of all ages.
