Product description

From the Back Cover

When twelve-year-old Max Miller immigrates to America with his mother and sister in 1912, he wants only to be together with his family and forget the old country where they were persecuted for being Jewish and where his two brothers died. The family lives above Max's uncle's store, and Max, on a treasured new bicycle, makes deliveries for his uncle. Not at all a typical Texan, Max likes to go to school, doesn't know how to swim or fish and is afraid of horses, completely the opposite of Joe Hollis, the blacksmith's son, who taunts Max about being Jewish and a greenhorn. When his papa, a peddler, doesn't come home for Passover, Max fears he may be a victim of an outbreak of meningitis. Max decides to ride his bicycle in search of his father, and his journey leads over flooded creeks and unfamiliar territory. Joe follows him out of town and joins him on his journey. The two boys learn to understand each other and become fast friends as they survive the perils of wilderness Texas.

About the Author

Dede Fox Ducharme is a native Texan and the granddaughter of Jewish immigrants to Galveston. This novel is not the author's family's story, but she says writing it gave her an opportunity to express her love for her grandparents and her pride in being a Jewish Texan. She is an intermediate school librarian in the Houston area.
