Most of the mustangs running wild in the U.S. are found in 10 western states: Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, California, Arizona, North Dakota and New Mexico. My own state of Colorado has a mustang refuge in the western part of the state. It was my interest in these herds that spurred me on to write In the Heart of a Mustang.
However, some mustangs also live on the Atlantic coast and on islands such as the Sable, Shackleford, Assateague and Cumberland Islands off the Atlantic coast.
Just as I was releasing my book about the Mustangs in the west, another wonderful author was writing and releasing a book about Mustangs in Pennsylvania, Christian author and writer of the popular Keystone Stables series just released
Snow: Phantom Stallion of the Poconos.
The author kindly asked me to review her book and I gladly accepted.
Snow is the wonderful story of a young teenage girl, challenged by a damaged leg from a horse injury when she was six. She has never abandoned her love of horses nor her dream of owning one again. Dallis has few friends and is the victim of much bullying by two other girls at her school.
A local legend has circulated around the appearance of a white stallion leading a herd in the Pocono mountains, While some campers and hikers have claimed to have seen him, no one has captured him on film to prove their claims. Dallis, the protagonist, is determined to find out if he exists.
While attending a church youth group winter camp, Dallis meets the stallion whom she names Snow. An immediate connection forms. Several months later, while attending an auction of Mustangs, they meet again. I don't want to spoil it so you will have to read it yourself!
Snow is a wonderful book for 9 to 12 year-olds. It is 110 pages long and an easy read. You can purchase it from amazon here:
