Great Turkey Walk

by Kathleen Karr


Quick Overview

Readers will gobble up this hilarious tale of a boy who resolves to walk 1,000 turkeys from Missouri to Colorado. A "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year and a "Publisher's Weekly" Best Book.


Fifteen-year-old Simon Green has just completed the third grade (for the fourth time) when Miss Rogers tells him it's time he made his way in the world of 1860. Simon may not be book-smart, but he hatches a plan that could make him a fortune. He intends to herd one thousand turkeys from Missouri to Denver, where meat is scarce and fetches a high price. Bankrolled by Miss Rogers and accompanied by a loyal drover and his dog, four mules, and a wagonload of shelled corn, Simon undertakes the biggest journey of his young life in this wild Wild West adventure.
