Miguel went with his father and brothers on their annual sheep move in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, but some of the sheep got lost during a storm and Miguel wants to help find them. Miguel leaves school and searches around the cliffs, mesa and hills to find the sheep, and at the end of the story, he finds the missing sheep and brings them back home.
