But Tricia's faith in God always gives her the strength to push her limits. Collection One includes The Race, Eagle's Wings, Go for the Glory, Kentucky Dreamer, and Call for Courage.

Back cover copy

Tricia Evanston has grown up riding and training horses with her father at their family's horse ranch, Runnin' On Farms. Through challenges and triumphs, Tricia learns to trust in God as she pursues her dream of racing in the big leagues. The Race Tricia can't wait to turn sixteen--then she'll be old enough to race her horse Spitfire at nearby Portland Meadows Racetrack. But her father's sudden health crisis devastates the entire family and could derail her jockey dreams. Eagle's Wings As her father's illness takes its toll on his body and on the family business, Tricia earns extra money by racing. But if she can't bring her grades up, her parents may put a stop to the only thing she truly enjoys. Go for the Glory Quickly becoming a local jockey phenom, Tricia begins to set her sights on the prestigious Santa Anita Derby--until an accident keeps her out of the saddle for weeks! Will she recover in time? Kentucky Dreamer Preparations to race in the Kentucky Derby are under way, but when Tricia is involved in a tragic accident at her home track, she can't shake the haunting images. Her racing suffers, and all of a sudden Kentucky seems farther away than ever. Call for Courage The Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing is actually within reach for Tricia and Spitfire! Tricia's lifelong dreams are clouded only by her father's health. Is he strong enough to see his daughter in the biggest race of her life?
