Read full description of the books:
Scorpion is an excellent novel and good description of the life of a real cowboy - not the movie version. If you love tales of the old west, the real old west, and horses you will enjoy this book. I first read the books written by Will James as a 13 or 14 year old and loved them. Now some 69 or 70 years older, I still love them. "Smoky", one the first books written and illustrated by James won the Newbery Medal for children's literature in 1927. The illustrations are excellent and are filled with action. Recommended for teens and up. G rated.

It was awarded the John Newbery Medal in 1927, and remains in print to this day. Several movie adaptations of the story have been created, including a 1933 version that included Will James himself as the narrator.
