Exerpt: 

There was a patch of blue sky right over me, but then it got swallowed up and a bunch of faces rained down at me. I felt pain all over. I realized these people were biting me! I thought, what the hell? One guy latched onto my hand, another was pulling on my left arm, but I was fighting against them, kicking and punching and pushing them back. One guy, the guy with the badge, practically fell on me, his arm hit my neck and right on my windpipe and I couldnít breathe and while Iím trying to breathe he started biting my ear Ė I could hear it crunch under his teeth, I felt the blood running down the side of my neck, and I brought my arm up and thumped down hard on him with my elbow. That knocked him off. I heard footsteps, more people coming, I felt more hands grabbing at me. I had to get out of there!

"Holy snappin' turtles!" Delmont whispered. "That's the biggest cow I've ever seen!" 

Charlie Ray punched Delmont on the arm. "That ain't no cow! It's some kind of lizard." Just then the critter stopped grazing. He lifted his big head and sniffed the air: big, snorting sniffs that sounded like a bramah bull. It stopped, then turned to look straight at the two brothers. Delmont and Charlie Ray stood still as the critter took one slow step towards them.  

"I don't think it liked bein' called a lizard, Charlie Ray," Delmont said...
