Kid Clay – 2018 TxAuthors.com Best YA Historical Fiction Book
Published by Argus Publishing
Kid Clay, a historical, western, adventure novel for middle graders based on his grandfather’s (Henry Carleton Clay) memoirs in which he describes his experiences as a teen cowboy during the time of the National Cattle Trail from 1880 to 1887.
All young boys dream about being a cowboy, driving herds of cattle across the prairies, and chasing Indians. Henry Clay (Kid Clay), the fifteen-year-old son of a Kentucky judge, is no different, but he gets a lot more than he bargained for… typhoid, rustlers, stampedes, Buffalo Bill, and bank robbers.
Kid Clay has the determination and bravery he needs to survive, but as he makes his way along the trail, he discovers that the West is beginning to change. That’s when he makes a momentous decision that will affect the rest of his life.
