 The Plot

Little Horse falls into a stream and is swept away from the Valley of Little Horses.  He finds danger, adventure and a new life.

cover Betsy Says

Little Horse really is little.  Thatís what I enjoyed about writing this book.  When youíre only about six inches tall, thereís danger everywhere Ė not just from fast currents and waterfalls, but from hawks and dogs and, even, humans.

I felt sorry for Little Horse, being swept away from his lovely valley and his mother, and Iím thinking about doing another book to take him home..
