Opening The West

Authored by Howard Y. Clymer

Conejito is an action and adventure story set in the Old West. It covers a brief exciting period in the life of one young man. As a young teen, when a violent attack on their wagon killed his family, Michael is left adrift. He is determined, even as his path twists and turns, to continue on the Oregon Trail. Nicknamed Conejito (little rabbit) when very young, the name sticks. His Indian friends discover, to their surprise, that he is not a little rabbit but more like a mountain lion in the forest when confronted with adversity. The trail to Oregon is constantly challenged by good and evil, love and frustration. Michael comments: "Everyone I meet has a problem and soon it involves me and I get in trouble!" The characters of Conejito are entirely fictional, but the difficulties, troubles and sucesses were real.
