Finding Home (Paperback)
For every girl or boy who owns a horse, or wished they did, Finding Home brings all the drama and beauty of America's wild horses to the middle grade reader. A coming-of-age story and a tale about friendship, trust and understanding, both horse and owner have powerful lessons to learn. Together, young Jesse Nolan from Colorado and her wild mustang, Curly Girl, rounded up in Wyoming, discover what it means to rely on oneself, as well as those who love you most. A poignant reminder of our shared responsibility to save and protect one of the American West's most noble creatures - the mustang. Beautifully illustrated throughout.
Corinne Joy Brown and Ginny McDonald took a tender topic and wove an amazing tale in Finding Home. Wild horses are a fascinating part of the West, and the writers' story of one girl's dream of owning a Curly of her own, and one mustang who was trapped and gentled, only to be sold into a home filled with love, is magical. Finding Home speaks to anyone who has felt for horses, family, and restoration.
