Tasked with spending his summer caring for his family's six thousand sheep in the haymeadow, fourteen-year-old John Barron (unsure if he's cut out for this assignment but eager to please his father) heads out alone into the meadow with just two horses and four dogs. As he encounters a slew of misadventures, including a coyote attack and a flood, John relies on his quick wit to see himself through this demanding experience.
Fourteen-year-old John Barron is asked, like his father and grandfather before him, to spend the summer taking care of their sheep in the haymeadow. Six thousand sheep. John will be alone, except for two horses, four dogs, and all those sheep.

John doesn't feel up to the task, but he hopes that if he can accomplish it, he will finally please his father. But John finds that the adage "things just to sheep" is true when the river floods, coyotes attack, and one dog's feet get cut. Through it all he must rely on his own resourcefulness, ingenuity, and talents to survive this summer in the haymeadow.
