Read in January, 1986

I've always thought this was sort of an under-appreciated work of Henry's. I'm not sure if it was simply overshadowed by the popularity of the better-known Misty books because it is a more distressing story than most of her others, or if it's less popular for some other reason. Possibly I was biased because it was Western and I grew up in Colorado and Texas and could better identify with it than with the Chincoteague books. If you can find one of the older hardbacks with color illustrations, get it; they're beautiful. A hard-won but worthwhile read for horse-crazy girls.
