About This Show

Every year for generations, the men of the Chavez family take their sheep to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains for the summer. This journey is a dream of a lifetime for 12-year-old Miguel and a family tradition for the time when a boy becomes a man. Not yet a man and no longer a child, Miguel works hard to be recognized as responsible and mature. When his deeds go unnoticed, Miguel prays to the saint for farmers everywhere, and his prayers are answered…but with devastating consequences. Based on the 1954 Newberry-winning novel by Joseph Krumgold.
