These guides are based on the novel When The
Cowboy Rides Away by award-winning Christian author Molly Noble Bull.
In this romantic historical western novel set
in the 1880s, Maggie Gallagher struggles to run a South Texas ranch on her own.
She's twenty-one and single, raising her younger sister and two-year-old
orphaned nephew after the death of both her parents nearly three years earlier.
Maggie takes in a handsome stranger who's been shot and seriously wounded on
her property. As she cares for him, she falls in love with him. How could she
know he has secrets that could break her heart?
This student guide accompanying Molly Noble
Bullâ€™s novel, When the Cowboy Rides Away, teaches students literary skills as
they read an exciting, historical western romance.
It includes background information about South
Texas during the last half of the nineteenth century, study questions per
chapter to guide studentâ€™s reading, vocabulary development, questions on the
structure of the novel, two writing assignments that can be done with little or
no help from the teacher, and a fun activityâ€”making lye soap.
A major test has been prepared and included in
the teacherâ€™s guide to be given at the conclusion of the novel. The guide was
designed to include skills that aid students in preparing for college.
