Overview For en neve havre

A real cowboy book!
A cowboy has got hold of a sack of money and wants to bury it. He draws a map and makes a cross in the sand to mark the right spot. But sand, as we all know, can be blown away.
As the cowboy is making his way home, he goes the wrong way and ends up in another house. He looks for his horse, but of course it’s not there, and the cowboy thinks that the horse has been stolen. There’s a birds-eye picture at the end so that it’s possible for the reader to discover where the money is buried.
