Red River Stallion

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

Amelia Otterchild Mackenzie, an orphan, has never seen a horse until the great red stallion Firefox rescues her from drowning. As her natural skill with horses becomes clear could this be the key that will lead Amelia to her missing father, a legendary horseman? In this dramatic and moving book Amelia and her beloved sister set off for the rough far west of Canada to find their father. But, with white-water rapids and wild animals to deal with, their river journey is a dangerous one . . .

Harrison's beautifully written story brings the Frontier of 1880's New World alive with her spirited heroine.
