Every night growing up, my big sister and I would have a story, or part
of a story, read to us before bed. It isn't hard to fathom that a
favorite topic of ours was horses. By far one of our favorites was an
old copy of my Misty of Chincoteague that belonged to our mother when
she was younger. For those of you who do not know the history behind
this book, it is a ritual to go to the island of Chincoteague, which is
off the coast of Virginia, and corral ferel ponies and use a ferry to
follow the swimming horses back to the main land to be broken and sold
at auction. Misty is a fictional pony and the book follows her (and her
foal in the remaining books of the series) as she makes the journey from
Chincoteague to the mainland. This is an enchanting book, and series,
that need to be in the hands of any young child interested in horses,
and let's be honest....who didn't want a pony growing up?

— Kirstyn


Nobody could capture the Phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateague Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom.

Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her, and worked hard to earn the money that she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them....

Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both?
