Summary
A native lad, born of a race that goes back to the Spanish, Pancho in the round of his life shares with young readers the colorful panorama of his life, -- sheep grazing, weaving, chile harvesting, lumbering, gathering piñon nuts, taking part in fiestas, in weddings, in holidays and even in house building. His devotion to the baby burro, born on his name day, is the connecting thread. Regional material, well-told, though once again one of the books that has good substance but that will have to be properly presented to catch young readers' interest. The pictures are lovely pastels by Olive Rush, perhaps a little too ""pretty"" for the subject, but charming. There will be a good deal of local interest, due to the Quarto-Centennial celebrations this year, and the district in and near Santa Fe should find it thoroughly saleable, and of probable value with schools and libraries -- Kirkus review
