Roaring with waterfalls, lonely rock ledges, and dense mountain forests of Nevada, Rutherford Montgomery once again powerfully portrays the craggy world he knows so well. This lusty equine saga is the story of Ebony, the wild stallion son of the ranch mare, Black Lady. Ready to foal, Black Lady escapes to the free mountain country that is to be the home of her son. On his way to maturity, Ebony befriends an escaped gelding named Charlie, and they become inseparable companions. Eventually, Ebony assumes the leadership of a herd of wild mares. The blazing, epic fights of the wild horses against the bloodthirsty range prowlers and the cowboys who hunt them, highlight this fast-paced story which will be read and reread by young horse and adventure lovers alike. Uncluttered with weighty adjectives, this very convincing story is nonetheless marked by a clear, crisp descriptive style.
