[American Spanish, from rancho, small ranch; see ranch.] Don Ignacio has total faith in the honesty of his foreman, Juan Verdades. So confident is he of Juan's honesty, Don Ignacio even wagers his ranch on Juan's inability to tell a lie. Beautiful Araceli puts Juan's integrity to a difficult test, but her temptation cannot compromise his honesty. Exquisite illustrations of the old American Southwest enhance the narrative. Ages 7 up.
