Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Samantha Forster (Sam) is a 13-year-old girl living on a ranch in Nevada. She loves animals, but is passionate about horses; especially the wild Phantom. Phantom runs with a band of mustang horses. Twice he has let the girl ride him and she considers this a privilege. When Phantom's band trespasses near Snake Head Peak, the horses are in big trouble. Sam sees the hermit named Caleb Sawyer shoot at them and she is convinced he is trying to kill them. Sam is out there near his land because she found a note her mother had written before she died. This note mentions several things, including a passage that states "no harm to the horses." There are other bits of information about wild horses grazing near Antelope Crossing. Sam knows that something about the wild horses and antelopes worried her mother and she is determined to piece together the clues. Her dad and stepmother think she is making too much of the note and do not want her to put herself in danger. But Sam is strong willed and forges ahead. She comes to realize much about who she is in the process. This mystery is set against a backdrop of interesting characters, some friends and some foes, wild and tame animals, and the wide open Nevada ranch land. Samantha is a likable protagonist; and readers will enjoy getting to know her. The supporting characters are realistic and the plot moves quickly. This title is the 11th book in the publisher's series about the "Phantom Stallion." An excerpt from number 12 in the series is provided at the back of the book. 2004, HarperCollins Children's Books, Ages 10 up.
