Grades 2-6

Howdy, I’m John Ware is a children's picture book about Canada's legendary Black cowboy. The story, ideal for ages 8-12, brings the real-life legend to a new generation of kids.

Despite experiencing enslavement, war and discrimination, this gifted horseman blazed a trail of kindness, becoming one of Alberta’s most loved and respected pioneer ranchers.

This 48-page full-colour illustrated biography includes a timeline, maps and educators' notes. It fits perfectly with the Grade Four curriculum but is suitable for Grades Two to Seven. Also an excellent choice for Black History Month.
