Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No ordinary horse story...Horse lovers or not, readers will be riveted.

-Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Ambitious and fast-moving.

-New York Times

When Oyuna was a baby, a horse accidentally crushed her foot, cursing her family with bad luck. Oyuna vows to restore good fortune to her family...but how?

One fateful day, soldiers from the great Khan's army invade her village to steal horses and gather new soldiers. In hopes of bringing honor to her family, Oyuna courageously disguises herself as a boy and joins the soldiers on their quest. With only her horse and her cat to keep her company, Oyuna sets off on an amazing journey across deserts and mountains-a journey that will change her life forever.

What Readers Are Saying...

An enchanting adventure.

This story of courage, friendship, and bravery is complete with the addition of a life lesson that leaves a mark on the reader's heart: never give up on your dreams.

A book I'll never forget.

Synopsis:

In early 14th-century China, Oyuna tells her granddaughter of her girlhood in Mongolia and how love for her horse had enabled her to win an important race and bring good luck to her family.
