RRP  $29.99 $27.95
In the badlands, where the ground is soft but the slopes are steep and the vegetation is scarce, it can be difficult for a wild horse to survive. Even more so if that horse is blind. But the young colt has his strong mare of a mother looking out for him, and his other senses help him smell the friendly prairie dogs, feel for rough terrain, and hear whenever wolves draw near-- sometimes well before anyone else in his herd.

That's not all. A boy named Whitey, about ten years old, and his ranch-owning Uncle Torwal watch from the sidelines whenever the colt and his herd pass through the plains near their home. Whitey, especially, hopes the young colt grows strong, just as he hopes they might get a chance to meet someday. And when a rough winter starts to settle in, he might just get his wish.

A classic of children's literature in the tradition of The Black Stallion and Misty of Chincoteague comes from one of America's master storytellers. Glen Rounds grew up in the Montana badlands, and drew from details from his own life on a ranch to depict one little colt's struggle to make it through the winter.
