WINTER HORSE by Glenn Balch


Email this review


A sequel to Lost Horse of last year, this story about the rescue of starving wild horses, misses none of the excitement and suspense of the other. When Ben and Dixie Darby, staying in Boise to attend school, realize that the West is passing through the worst blizzard in years, they immediately think of the wild stallion King and his band of mares wintering outside the Darby ranch and beyond help. In spite of the protests of their parents, Ben and Dixie trek through the snow with their friend Gaucho and after days of heart-breaking labor, witnessing terrible deaths of horses, protecting the last survivors, including King, from wolves, they are at last able, through a miracle, to save the remnants of the band. A book which will be breathlessly read in one sitting by animal lovers.
