Jonathan London is an award-winning author well known for his compassion for and commitment to wildlife. His recent book PANTHER: SHADOW OF THE SWAMP was the recipient of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Book Award. About MUSTANG CANYON he says, "When I first saw wild horses while on a white-water rafting trip, my heart pounded as hard from seeing the mustangs as from riding the rapids."
Daniel San Souci is the acclaimed illustrator of many books for young readers. About Little Pinto, he says, "The Plains Indians believed that a horse with dark shield markings on its neck and chest possessed magical powers. I created Little Pinto with these markings because the horse, I felt, must have had ‘magical powers’ to survive the river’s raging waters."
