Howdy! This is the story of John Ware, Canada’s legendary Black cowboy, who blazed a trail of kindness despite adversity. Leaving behind slavery and war in the southern U.S., he travelled two thousand miles in the saddle, and became one of Alberta’s most loved and respected ranchers.

Ideal for ages 8-12, the book contains a lesson plan for educators, timeline, and maps. With eye-catching illustrations by comic book artist Hugh Rookwood, and a kid-friendly retelling of John Ware's real-life story by journalist Ayesha Clough, this book will delight and entertain children. It will also teach them about the history of Canada's West and the establishment of the cattle industry in Alberta.

A wonderful resource for teachers and homeschoolers when covering Black History or marking Black History Month in February.
