About the Book

Animal friends in the Arizona Sonoran Desert are found in all sizes, shapes, and colors.

Rodney, a Roadrunner and his best friend Quincy, a Gambel’s quail spend days racing each other through dry creek beds called arroyos. One day Rodney and Quincy meet two hunting dogs—Gator and his three-legged buddy Tripod. Danger surrounds the four friends as a thunderstorm sends tremendous amounts of muddy water down the arroyo. The force of water swept Tripod away. Who will come to his rescue? What will happen when the Great One (the dogs human hunter) arrives?
