Synopses & Reviews
A raging storm slashes across Assateague and Chincoteague islands. Water is everywhere! The wild
ponies and the people must battle for their lives.
In the midst of the storm, Misty-the famous mare of Chincoteague-is about to give birth. Paul and Maureen are frantic
with worry as the storm rages on... will Misty and her colt survive?
This is the thrilling story of the hurricane that destroyed the wild herds of Assateague, and how
strength and love helped rebuild them.
"The story is... a true one, and Marguerite Henry fills it with human understanding. Here, side by side,
are humor and pathos, elation and suffering, and victory arising from defeat."
"A thrilling tale."
