    1. Personal ResponseI personally loved this book I like how there is so much that I can relate to in this book For example the intense descriptions of the family farm that you come to love that others will hate for their entire life and how you can tell what your neighbors are doing just by the sound of the engines telling exactly what they are using I could not put this book down once I got reading it until it was the end Overall I rate this book with five stars.Plot SummaryIt s the summer just af [...]

    3. It s not just frigid Northern winters and dogsledding that Gary Paulsen writes about with unique sensitivity and experiential knowledge He speaks of the American West with the same unmistakable affection and familiarity, aided by the fact that he and his wife, Ruth Wright Paulsen who contributed The Haymeadow s handsome illustrations , owned homes in Wyoming and New Mexico when this novel was first published in 1992 Gary Paulsen always was an indefatigable researcher, not laying pen to page unti [...]


    4. I read this Gary Paulsen classic aloud to my husband and 13 year old son as we wound our way through Wyoming and Montana in our RV this summer My husband s comment after we finished the book one evening by the campfire was, I know his target audience is teenage boys, but I can t think of an author I like Another great coming of age story by the best outdoor writer of our time

    6. I really enjoyed reading it It was nice reading something that had a smooth story line, but still followed interesting conflicts I ve always adored books involving survival and nature, so I was excited to see that most of the events were to take place far from civilization with a boy and 6000 sheep I even found the idea of a 14 year old kid taking care of that many sheep alone to be almost comedic In the end, I personally thought it was a great story and I do recommend reading it.


    7. In parts, I laughed so hard my sides hurt The way Paulsen tells the story about the lands, John the boy who knew nothing about was he was tasked to do, but would shortly learn, the family heritage, not to mention the pristine beauty of the surrounding country, makes this book, in my estimation, one of Paulsen s Best.


    8. A novel about a young boy s coming of age in a way Do to changes at the ranch, he is to drive the sheep to the hay meadow for the summer Many things happengood and bad But this boy learns he has become a man in the end Great book


    9. It is a good book, and I d recommend it to people who take care of cattle and stuff like that It s a good way to learn about survival and how to keep things going Gary Paulsen is a good author I hope to read of his books in the future.


    10. The Haymeadow was a very interesting and outdoorsy book I could relate to it except for taking care of 6000 sheep It was probably one of my favorite books to read I like John s love for the outdoors I would recommend this book for any person who likes nature and the outdoors, or a farmer.

    24. I liked this book less than I wanted to I typically enjoy adventure stories that deal with overcoming some sort of natural obstacle in order to survive , especially when it has to deal with horses or ranching This was just a little too much survival though Don t get me wrong, it was good to see all the stuff about ranching and all of the hardships that must be faced when caring for sheep on your own, but it felt like it was slam full of one chaotic event after another, leaving no time to take a [...]
