I think the book is alright. In some parts, the book is boring and in some parts it is mysterious. I don't really like books like that. It could be shorter so people wouldn't get bored with it, that's what I think. Make it shorter and it will be perfect. The end was crusty the way Sam died. He shouldn't have been killed for something he didn't do. I thought Sam and Tim were pretty brave. Sam fought and Tim fooled those cowboys. I think Tim changed the most. He ended up having to do a lot more work because his dad and brother were dead.
I would recomend this book. I think my mom would want this book. She likes books like this.
