Summary
Peter Dunstan is a big rancher seeking to control more land. When he buys Dr. Henry Morgan's ranch there is one stipulation: Dunstan must retain Sandy Sweyn, Dr. Morgan's ward. Though the man is of age, he is generally considered a half-wit. Still, he has a fabulous gift: he can communicate with animals. The most obstinate bronco will yield to his subtly persuasive methods even when expert horse breakers have failed. After he gentles the recalcitrant gelding that Dunstan has been trying to break, Sandy claims that his own mare, Cleo, could easily outrun the gelding in a race. A contemptuous Dunstan bets $5,000 and ownership of the gelding otherwise. Cleo readily wins. Rather than indulging his anger, Dunstan decides to use Sandy's gifts to his advantage by getting him seemingly impossible tasks. But after each of these tasks is accomplished, some personal misfortune befalls Dunstan. Finally Dunstan drives Sandy into the mountain wilderness, where his prowess becomes legendary. And when Dunstan comes to need Sandy more than ever, his only way of getting him back is to resort to trickery
Summary
