"PUMPKIN ROLLERS follows Trey McLean, an innocent farm boy from east Texas, as he sets out from his home to make it on his own. Along the way, Trey's courage and integrity are tested as he encounters outlaws, gunmen, shady women, and a bounty hunter on a mission from God. The story is romantic and exciting, with Trey losing his cattle to a crooked rancher and becoming a stable boy, a cowboy, and finally, a husband and a rancher in his own right. George Guidall's gentle storytelling helps make this beautiful coming-of-age story even more alive. Highlighted by with Kelton's ability to create authentic and morally complex characters, PUMPKIN ROLLERS will restore anyone's faith that the Western is alive and well. S.E.S.
