Content descriptions

General Note: Edited by Tara Walker--T.p. verso.
Summary: "Ellie believes that she will live in her little village on the coast of Nova Scotia for always. But when her father gets a job on Sable Island, she must say farewell to her beloved home and her mother's final resting place. Not even the idea of seeing the wild horses that roam the island can ease her pain of leaving. And after arriving on the sandy, windswept crescent of land, Ellie feels adrift and alone ... until one afternoon when she wakens on a dune to find herself looking into the curious eyes of a wild stallion. Little by little, as the days pass, Ellie gets closer to the beautiful chocolate-colored horse. Yet she soon discovers something that could take him away from his home, his herd, and her. Ellie has lost too much already. Will she loose her island horse, too?"--P. [2] of cover.
