Smoky Comes Home

The novel Smoky the Cowhorse by French-Canadian writer and artist Will James won the Newbery Medal in 1927, which is awarded in recognition of a distinguished contribution to American literature for children. I wrote a small excerpt in Centennial Gregg for the blog.

  1. I was having a bit of trouble reading this, until I realized he's speaking "cowboy talk."

    I do have a question on page 2, column 2 down towards the bottom. It says," green grass-covered ridges took the place of snow banks and the _____ along creeks was beginning to bud."

    What is that word?
