The main character (and he is that! All cowboy hero to boot) is Panhandle Smith. He was born to Bill and Margaret Smith out on the open prairie, under the blistering sun.
Pan, as he’s later called, was named by his father for the Panhandle, a lonely unruly purple range land with often, fierce winds. Pan would grow to be as wild and free as the land he was born into. His father is a wandering cattleman who chases his fortune to Texas. In the stark hardness of Bill and Mary’s life on the open range, she comes to him one day. He stops his plowing anticipating lunch but instead she presents him with their newly born baby boy. Wow! Talk about those strong pioneer women. Mr. Grey captivates the reader and soon you are seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting all in the life of Pan and those with him on this coming of age story. He is a strong individual from almost birth on, and his love for horses and freedom to roam cast him to his fate. [Suggest a different description.]
