Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For all lovers of horses and history, it's the next book in the popular Horse Diaries series. Born in California at the start of the Great Depression, Risky Chance is a gray thoroughbred who was born to race. Life at the track and being spoiled by his jockey's young daughter, Marie, is all Chance could ask for. He loves nothing more than running fast and winning. But after an accident, Chance discovers a side of horse racing that has little to do with glory.

Like Black Beauty, this moving novel is told in first person from the horse's own point of view and includes an appendix full of photos and facts about thoroughbreds, horse racing, and the Great Depression.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

About the Author

ALISON HART has been horse-crazy ever since she can remember. A teacher and author, she's written over 20 books for children, most of them about horses. Her novel Shadow Horse, another Random House title, was nominated for an Edgar Award. Today Ms. Hart still rides because—you guessed it—she's still horse-crazy!

RUTH SANDERSON has illustrated books for children of all ages, including Summer Pony; Winter Pony; Hush, Little Horsie, and the entire Horse Diaries series. She lives with her family in Ware, Massachusetts, and her favorite hobby is horseback riding.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
