ABOUT
THE BOOK

A powerfully realised novel that weaves the past with the present and the real with the imaginary.

In Winstone’s imagination, the Kid and his partner ride through the Wild West on the trail of their quarry. In Winstone’s actual life, he’s had to abandon his ‘partner’ and is hiding out in the tough landscape of Central Otago. What has this boy run from, and how will the resilient and engaging twelve-year-old survive?

This moving, inventive and hard-hitting novel will remain with you long after you have finished the last page.
