Concrete Cowboy: Movie Tie-in Edition (Ghetto Cowboy)

By G. Neri
Illustrated by Jesse Joshua Watson

See the film on Netflix, starring Idris Elba and Caleb McLaughlin

When Cole’s mom dumps him in the mean streets of Philly to live with the dad he’s never met, the last thing he expects to see is a horse—let alone a stable full of them. He may not know much about cowboys, but what he knows for sure is that cowboys ain’t black, and they don’t live in the ‘hood. But in this ‘hood, horses are a way of life, and when the City threatens to shut down the stables, Cole realizes it’s time to stand up for what’s right—the Cowboy Way.

  • A fascinating setting, based on a real subculture of black cowboys in inner city Philadelphia
  • Now a major motion picture starring Idris Elba
  • Fast-paced and action-packed; perfect for reluctant readers
