This bumper volume of stories is destined to become a family read-aloud favorite. This is not the "wild west" we're used to hearing about—this is the West family whose adventures have an almost McCloskey-like inventiveness and innocence. The Wests are everything cousin Michael is not allowed to be—noisy, crazy, and very, very messy.
