Grandpa Lolo lives on a ranch in northern New Mexico. When he buys a black-and-white horse named Zorrillo (skunk) from Manuelito Yazzie, a Navajo who lives in a hogan in Torreon, Manuelito throws a tilma, a beautiful Navajo saddle blanket, into the deal. And so begins a beautiful friendship.
This authentic slice of life in the multicultural West will warm the hearts of readers of all ages.
