Overview

In the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, in the year 1900, friendships between children of white "intruders" and their Choctaw and Chickasaw schoolmates had to cross a deep cultural divide. It was also a time when public ignorance could make a mockery of the ambitions of a boy with dwarfism and a place where children had to grow up fast.
Trouble begins when a beautiful wild stallion, a supposed man killer, is rescued by two adventurous young brothers. When the stallion is identified as a rare Choctaw horse, the question of who should own him threatens to destroy cherished friendships. Then a courageous decision by a young boy allows the ancient spirit of Buster, their Choctaw Pony survivor, to live on for future generations to love and respect.

About the Author

Author Sarah Silver based this novel on her father's stories of his childhood in the Choctaw Nation of the Indian Territory, the extraordinary wild horse he rescued, and the political and cultural issues of statehood versus tribal sovereignty that challenged friendships between the white and Indian students in his one room school in the early 1900's.
