Synopses & Reviews
Popular North Country yarnspinner Willem Lange interprets the true tale of a young logger who is saved by his remarkable Morgan horse after an accident in the woods. Luminous watercolors beautifully convey the mutual bond of love and trust between man and animal, while the warmhearted narrative calls out to armchair readers young and old. Concluding activity page. Ages 6-10.
On a crisp November day, work for the logger, John, and his trusty horse, Tom, goes smoothly, until suddenly disaster strikes. As John cuts through the trunk of a big pine tree, the tree falls unexpectedly, pinning John's foot to the ground. He's stuck, and night is falling. Tom is tied nearby, but can the faithful horse unhitch himself and help?
