    Excellent Series!

    My daughter and I are reading this series together and I love it just as much as she does. It is so refreshing to hear my child beg to keep reading! I would recommend this to any child, not just a girl, between the ages of 8 and 12, especially if they love horses!

    BLEAK, DEPRESSING, MISERABLE BOOKS!

    Books one & two of this series are SO DEPRESSING & SAD & BLEAK--I had a hard time reading them to my daughters every night. I found it impossible to explain why a young girl was an orphan, why she mourned her dead parents (which the author details graphically), and why she's being BEATEN & treated as a SLAVE by the childless couple who takes her in.

    Things never get better or happier--they just change location. She goes on the trail to Oregon, and meets with MORE heart-wrenching tragedy. Things never gell with the wild Mustang. There is NO happy ending--things are just left as bleak as they started.

    I wouldn't read this as an adult--DEFINITELY NOT FOR KIDS!!! Sad, sad, nightmare city!

    Wonderful new series for young readers.

    Young Katie, orphaned in an epidemic, is taken in by Mr. and Mrs. Stevens, a childless couple. But then she learned that they planned to kill the mustang horse she had befriended and take her to an orphanage in St. Louis. With the help of Hiram, the farmhand, Katie is able to escape the Stevenses and take the mustang with her. Hiram, who has no family of his own, feels he must protect Katie and offers to take her on the long journey west so she can live with her relatives in Oregon. But just the journey to Independence, Missourri -- the starting-off point for the Oregon Trail -- is difficult and dangerous, and the mustang still doesn't trust Katie fully. Young readers who enjoy historical fiction or horse stories will love this new series from Kathleen Duey.
