Publisher Comments:

Jenny Hughes incorporates a thorough knowledge of horsemanship into her action-adventure novels for young readers.

Tia accompanies her father to an island where he wants to research the local legend of a stallion that swam ashore from a shipwreck 150 years earlier. All is going well—much horseback riding on the island's trails, a cute local boy who rides, beautiful moors, beaches for swimming. . . . Until people start mysteriously getting hurt, and someone seems to be stalking Tia and her friends. The mystery is unraveled by Tia after much courageous riding, leading to a dramatic climax.


A girl on a remote island investigates the mysterious legend of a of shipwrecked horse.
