One Last Time

William J. Buchanan, Author Avon Books $2.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-380-76152-4
David Baca, a 15-year-old Native American, lives with his family on a reservation in New Mexico. While enduring yet another racial taunt by a bullying schoolmate, he appreciates the bravery of Steven Callister, a Caucasian who defends him. It's the beginning of a close friendship between the two--a connection that is both tested and strengthened by their cultural differences. But after Steven is thrown from a stallion and sustains serious injuries, David faces the challenge of helping his friend overcome a resultant fear of horseback riding. Based on an actual event, Buchanan's ( One Shining Season ) story is a moving coming-of-age piece that incorporates suspense and adventure--the friends stalk a ferocious bull menacing the area--and remains refreshingly unpredictable throughout. Though some terms--mesa, arroyo--may be unfamiliar, an excursion to this land and its people is enlightening and rewarding. Ages 12-up. (Feb.)
