What a charming book!

Perhaps Henry's best, the classic tale of Misty has surprising depth and richness. As Maureen and Paul find a way to buy and gentle the fierce Chincoteague mare, Phantom, they discover new-found maturity and strength through the obstacles they must overcome. A delightful romp, Misty of Chincoteague is a story that you'll want to read over and over again.

As a horse-crazed child, I adored this novel. As an adult, I still found myself racing through the pages and enjoyed every minute of it.
