The book that I am reading is called Tuckets Ride. It is the second book in the series. It is about a fifteen year-old boy named Tucket that travels with two orphans across the west. The three have had many scary experiences in there journey like being kidnapped by outlaws and others and always seem to escape.
This is a great book by Gary Paulsen. He describes the places they are at, the weather and the looks of things really well. He makes it easy to picture these things. This book is full of adventure and surprises. This book made me want to read it more since I am about his age. It is a good book to me because as I mentioned about my age and going through stuff, like kidnapping, that other people my age go through.
During the whole book it is kind of like a history lesson because Paulsen gives information about the Wild West.

Format: Hardcover
This book is about Tucket, a fifteen-year-old boy, who is traveling across the Wild West with two orphans, in search of his parents. The three young people encounter a variety of life threatening experiences, such as being kidnapped by a band of Comancheros, outlaws with sympathy for no one. This book features many qualities valuable to the young reader. First, it is filled with suspenseful adventure. It gives detailed accounts of the frightening situations the children get into, and how they always miraculously escape. The story is also exciting because it describes the challenging conditions in which the children live. Paulson explains the landscape, weather, and people exceptionally well, giving the reader a vivid picture of the surroundings. In addition, the author writes about how the children survive, including the way they eat, travel, and defend themselves. They try to be prepared for every unexpected event, especially one that may threaten their lives. In this book, Paulson strongly addresses the universal human concern of survival. He gives the reader a detailed account of the life and death situations with which the children are faced. They are physically abused and generally maltreated by the Comancheros. They are forced to draw upon their every strength in order to endure the conditions. Paulson's focus on the universal human concern of survival is valuable to young readers for several reasons. First, it is important because it teaches children about the way people lived in history, and that not everyone had Nickelodeon and McDonald's! During the time this story took place, people had to live off the land and deal with great hardships due to weather and disease. These are aspects of our environment that we can now have some control over.Read more ›

Great book for boys to read Jan. 9 2007
By L. Goad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son loves to read all of the Tucket series books. This book is a great value because it includes 5 books in one. My son does not put reading on the top of his favorite thing to do however the Tucket series has caught his interest. I recommend this book to anyone with a elementary age boy.

Tucket's Ride Dec 2 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Tucket's Ride", by Gary Paulsen is a good book. It has action and adventure emotion, and romance. One part of the story when Tucket takes aim with his rifle , but everyone else has there guns pointed at him and they all fired at the same time. If you like action books, than "Tucket's Ride" is the book for you.
