Misty of Chincoteague


Nobody could capture the Phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateauge Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom.


Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her, and worked hard to earn the money she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them....


Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both?

Synopsis:

Henry's Newbery Honor book tells the story of Chincoteague, and island off the coasts of Virginia and Maryland that's home to a centuries-old band of wild ponies, and Phantom, a rarely seen mare that eludes all efforts to capture her. Now available in this summer reading program edition. Illustrations.

Despite a few years of horse-craziness, I never read this as a child. Now I'm reading it to my eight-year-old and can't believe I missed it. It's so, so sweet, but not cloying. It truly reflects a simpler time with clarity and detail in a way that contemporary children can still embrace.
