Glen Rounds puts his dry brush treatment to the sagebrush again -- for the fourth Whitey book. This time Whitey and his sidekick Josie spot a moving speck on the desert near Uncle Torwald's ranch. They investigate and find a wild horse trapped in a washout. The children bring food to him and eventually release him from his accidental entrapment. Then a stranger appears and tries to claim the horse. But Uncle Torwal protects the youngsters' claim, for a happy ending. Slow readers can canter through this.
