Description

WINNER OF THE SCBWI CRYSTAL KITEWINNER OF THE WRITER'S LEAGUE OF TEXAS PICTURE BOOK AWARD. The U.S. Army's oddest recruits: Camels! In this strange but true historical tale, 34 camels were imported to Texas to work as pack animals for the army in 1856. Many people had never seen such strange animals; they didn't believe that these smelly beasts could possibly be useful. Despite many Texans' initial doubts, the camels thrived in the state's desert and transported important military messages and supplies.
