Meet Archie
Featherspoon

Archie never seems to have time to do his chores on the Featherspoon farm in Boot Junction, Texas. He's too busy concocting new inventions. His latest is a fleet of high-flying rainbow rockets, a surprise for Ma's birthday.

But now it looks as if Archie may not be in Boot Junction for Ma's birthday at all. The twister of '75 has landed Archie right in the middle of a rough, western town -- and right in the middle of big trouble. The townsfolk think Archie is their new sheriff -- just as the dreaded Buster and the Bully Boys are riding into town. If Archie can't outfight the gang, can he and his bag of tricks outsmart them? And get back to Boot Junction in time for Ma's birthday?
