Awarded a 1961 Newbery Honor, Old Ramon tells the timeless
coming-of-age story of a young boy who spends a summer with an old
shepherd in the Mojave Desert. He leaves his textbooks behind for
real life lessons with Ramon as his mentor. He learns not only how
to care for the sheep but how to overcome fear, how to face death
and responsibility, and the difference between being alone and
being lonely. Written in Schaefer's charming and engaging style,
the novel details a boy's discovery of both the value of friendship
and the hardship of life.
