Overview

The thrilling world of DreamWorks Animation's Spirit Riding Free is brought to life in award-winning author Suzanne Selfors's original novel!

Twelve-year-old Lucky Prescott craves adventure, but as a young lady of society she's only been allowed to experience adventure through books. That is, until one fateful day when Lucky, her father, and her aunt leave their neat-and-tidy city life and travel to their new home out west-the Wild West.

At first Lucky is excited, but during the long train ride to her new hometown of Miradero, she begins to worry. What if she doesn't make any new friends? Everyone in the West rides horses, but she's never been allowed to even sit on one. How can she possibly fit in? Anxious about the future, Lucky looks out the train window and sees a majestic wild stallion. When their eyes meet, she senses a connection. But when the stallion is caught by wranglers, Lucky's heart breaks. And when she next sees the stallion, he's tied to a post, refusing to be "broken in."

Spirit Riding Free: The Adventure Begins is the story of a girl and a wild horse, equally out of place in a strange, new world, but equally fierce and brave. With each other to lean on, will these two free spirits be able to find a home together?

The entertaining story of a young girl of boundless energy and curiosity and her intrinsic connection to horses. A chapter book, it’s the first in a new series for middle grade readers based on an animated Disney film about a young stallion named Spirit. It takes place mainly in the nineteenth century American west at a time when strict social mores dictated what females could do and how they should act. While Spirit is an essential part of this story, the focus is mainly on Lucky, the twelve year girl with whom he bonds. Told in several different forms including flyers and letters, it’s an appealing story of family and friendship that young readers are sure to enjoy.
