[Paul] gazed awestruck. It could be the Phantom's tail, he breathed. It is! It is! It is! And the silver flash-it's not mist at all, but a brand-new colt...
When Paul Beebe gets a chance to ride with the men out to Assateague Island on Pony Penning Day, he's got one thing on his mind -to bring in the Phantom. So when Paul finds himself trailing the Phantom and her new colt, he knows it's meant to be. All he needs to do is drive them to Tom's Point, across the channel, and then he and his sister Maureen can buy them both!
But the Phantom and Misty, her colt, are wild things, born of the sea and the fierce winds. Can this untamed pair ever adjust to domestic life back on Chincoteague?
