Juan Verdades

Juan Verdades

by Joe Hayes Illustrated by Joseph Daniel Fiedler
In this traditional tale of truth and honesty from Mexico, two wealthy rancheros bet all they own on the honesty — or the lack thereof — of a ranch foreman named Juan Verdades (John Truth). Juan's employer doesn't doubt his honesty one bit, but when the other ranchero's beautiful daughter enters the picture, Juan's truthfulness is in danger of failing him.
