Another cute story by Terri Farley. Well worth the read. One of my favorite things about these books are that the author does not sugar coat the hardships of living on a ranch. She talks about money issues, droughts,flash floods, and other things that affect living on a ranch.

I also enjoyed this story because she left a lot more to the imagination as she delved into the story. It wasn't too easy to guess the answer. I liked the mystery. I also liked the idea that the main character is growing u

Although it was nice to see the focus of the series go back to Sam and The Phantom rather than to Sam and (insert new horse's name here) this plot got too silly for words. Very unrealistic, escapist stuff -- which does have its place in this highly stressed-out world BUT STILL ...

The renegade is the fourth book in the Phantom Stallion series.
For the phantom there is only one girl, for Sam there is only on horse. When a rodeo contractor comes to town, Sam worries. The women wants to buy tamed mustangs from local ranchers, evens Sam's dad. The contractor doesn't seem to take no for an answer. One day Sam spots the phantoms herd- without the Phantom! Sam is sure he has been captured by the rodeo, but how will she find him? If she finds him, how will she set him free?

I believe this is the last in the series I read. I wish I'd continued, but I suppose I moved on to more adult books. Anyway, this series was great for its intended audience and when I was 11/12 I enjoyed it!
Another book in the same series, Phantom Stallion. Sam is a young teenage girl who lives on a ranch, and loves her horse, Ace and the wild stallion that she calls Phantom. Cute story, light read.

I liked this book. It's like the others in the series, light an easy to read. What took this book down a star was the way it pictured rodeo. Rodeo contractors aren't cruel and abusive.

The renegade was good, but the author drew it out. I didn't like it as well as the third one.

I really liked this one. I prefer the books that actually centre around the Phantom.

The Phantom is captured by a rodeo conductor and Sam fights to get him back.
Good to pass time. Can be interesting/exciting-but def. for horse freaks!
