NPR Summary

What could go wrong as the Bone cousins try to return to Boneville after visiting the village of Barrenville? Plenty. Phoney risks everything on one last get-rich-quick scheme for the annual Great Cow Race, but when his plans go disastrously awry, Boneville seems farther away than ever. Ominous signs indicate that a war is brewing, and Fone finds himself helping his friends defend their valley from a formidable enemy.
