This exciting children's book tells how a 12 year old girl, accompanied by the wild mustang she calls a friend, is drawn into the decades-old mystery surrounding the scary "man on the mountain" and a strange metallic object buried on Shadow Ridge.
HOPE'S HORSE: The Mystery of Shadow Ridge, by bestselling children's author Strawberry Shakespeare, is an exciting adventure novel for young readers, which is scheduled for release by Diamond Star Press in December 2012. Set in the California Eastern Sierras, it tells the story of twelve year old Hope Miller and her wild mustang, Tango.
While recovering from the death of her beloved grandfather, who shared her love of horses, Hope is forbidden by her parents to go on the mountain alone or anywhere near the wild horses she adores. So the girl keeps her horse, Tango, a secret from her parents, and rides him on the mountain without their knowledge.
On one of these outings, she and Tango evade evil poachers only to face a scary old mountain man. Escaping in a mad dash up the dark side of the mountain, they discover a mysterious metal object buried on Shadow Ridge. Hope instinctively knows her find is important and that she should tell her parents about it. But if she tells, she would also have to reveal the truth about her and Tango, and would probably never see him again.
A surprising turn of events merges the destinies of Hope, Tango and the old man on the mountain during a life-threatening confrontation with dangerous horse poachers. The resulting explosion of action, excitement, heartbreak and, ultimately, healing is a must-read experience for the whole family and for every kid who loves adventure and horse stories.
