Publisher Comments:

Adventure, drama, wild horses running free. The American West is brought to life through the eyes of the horses who were there in a new program of books inspired by Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, the new film coming May 2002 from DreamWorks.

Sierra is a feisty young filly when natural disaster separates her from her herd of free horses. Alone and struggling to survive in the harsh elements, she encounters another horse who leads her to a Lakota encampment. But can Sierra find a place with them without sacrificing her freedom and independence?

Sierra is a young mustang, proud, free and excitable. She sometimes too wild for her herd where her roughhousing and running around get her into trouble with the older mares. But when the herd's lead stallion is defeated by a young inexperienced stallion who is too harsh on the older mares and the herd's health starts to fail, Sierra becomes more nervous and flighty. One day she runs too far and loses her herd. She struggles to survive as a lone horse, until she meets another horse, one who smells of smoke and humans. She is mistrustful but decides that having a herdmate who smells is better then no herdmate at all. But can their fragile bond survive if he finds his humans again, or will Sierra once again be on her own?

Beautiful horse story. I like that although told from a horse's point of view we have no horses talking, even to each other. As in the real world they communicate through body language and the odd sniffs and snorts that horses use. The author has a gift for writing in this way, telling us what happens and how the horse feels without resorting to making the horses talk to explain it to us humans.

Another one of Kathleen Duey's great books. Sierra follows the life of Bonita's daughter Sierra, and how Sierra meets Storm Cloud. How Sierra becomes a more tame mare, and ends up living with a tribe of Native Americans. A great book for horse lovin kid!
