Description

From the treacherous mountain trails of the Pony Express, to the vast prairies of America where pioneers first settled...The "Saddle the Wind" series will sweep readers back through history on an unforgettable journey. They will meet very special heroines from different times and cultures, with two things in common: a great love of horses, and a unique brand of courage. Erika Nagys and her family have come to California from Hungary, in search of gold. When they cannot pay the rent, Erika must go and work for their nasty landlord, the rancher Hart Latham. Erika forms a special bond with an injured filly named Arany, whom she nurses back to health. When Arany escapes from the corral, Erika finds the horse - and gold - in Blackwater Creek. But will newfound riches solve her family's problems?show more
