Gr 1-3A welcome addition to Spanish-language collections. Goble relates the story of a Native American girl who is happiest when she can tend to her horses, take them to choice pastures, and shelter them from storms. One day she and the herd get lost far from home and she is befriended by a magnificent wild stallion. Although she is eventually found by her people, the girl chooses to return to her free life with the wild creatures. This fine translation maintains the poetic spirit of the enchanting tale. The Caldecott Award-winning illustrations are outstanding in their colorful cultural details. The love and respect for wildlife is readily apparent in the expressive artwork.Tania Colmant-Donabedian, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
