Description

From the vast prairies of America where pioneers first settled to the battlegrounds of civil war, 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. This work is set in Pennsylvania, 1774...On the brink of the American War of Independence, a young girl and her faithful Conestoga horse, Clipper, are caught up in rebel activities as her twin brother joins local farmers in armed resitance against the imposition of burdensome new taxes by their British governors and national resentment of British rule boils over into revolution.show more
