Description: After the death of his mother, 11-year-old Preston Davis, a.k.a. Buckaroo, gets packed off to live in Cotton Patch, Arkansas, with his eccentric great-aunt. He doesn't know what's worst: Aunt Eugenia, whose flamboyant ways embarrass him; missing his mother something fierce; feeling resentful that his newly remarried father doesn't want him around; or being forced to rake leaves with Ivy Johnson, a black girl.

One thing's for sure: Buckaroo figures Cotton Patch will never be home if he's seen with Ivy. The town may have whites and blacks, but it's 1958, segregation is the norm, and no way does Buckaroo want to alienate his few friends by socializing with "colored" folks. Still, Buckaroo does what Aunt Eugenia says: he rakes leaves with Ivy, and confronts prejudice head-on. Friendships, he discovers, are forged and tested in usual ways, and ugliness exists in us all. As Buckaroo deals with his many, conflicting feelings, he tries to imagine what Roy Rogers, his favorite TV cowboy hero, would do. Ultimately Buckaroo finds the hero within himself.
