What could be more thrilling than to run with a band of wild mustangs - and to share Little Pinto’s struggle to survive?
Deep in the heart of the canyon, a little pinto is born. In just three weeks he and his band of mustangs are ready to travel on. Danger is always lurking, so Old White Face stands guard - ready to sound a warning to flee when a plane swoops overhead. Little Pinto struggles to keep up, but as the herd pounds through the canyon, he stumbles. . . .
Jonathan London’s spare, dramatic text whisks readers into the midst
of a thundering band of mustangs, while an afterword focuses on their
remarkable history and their protection by Congress since 1971. With
Daniel San Souci’s watercolors capturing every flurry of hooves and toss
of the mane, this is a story to captivate anyone who loves horses -
and everyone who treasures the ever-diminishing natural world.
Jonathan London is an award-winning author well known for his compassion for and commitment to wildlife. His recent book PANTHER: SHADOW OF THE SWAMP was the recipient of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Book Award. About MUSTANG CANYON he says, "When I first saw wild horses while on a white-water rafting trip, my heart pounded as hard from seeing the mustangs as from riding the rapids."
Daniel San Souci is the acclaimed illustrator of many books for young readers. About Little Pinto, he says, "The Plains Indians believed that a horse with dark shield markings on its neck and chest possessed magical powers. I created Little Pinto with these markings because the horse, I felt, must have had ‘magical powers’ to survive the river’s raging waters."
