With reward money in hand, Kate, Anders, and Erik head to a stable to buy a horse for Kate. A beautiful black stallion is for sale, but she discovers she can buy two poorly cared for horses for the price of one, and Kate strikes a deal. While riding home with Windsong and Breeza, Kate and Erik are startled when someone tries to grab Windsong’s bridle. Kate eludes the would-be thief, but she’s frightened. Who would want to steal a scruffy, underfed horse? When Windsong’s lead rope is deliberately untied and the horse disappears, Kate becomes convinced her horse must be more valuable than she first believed. But Kate is also sure she’s made a terrible mistake. Can she ever know the love of God again?
Best-selling novels set in the early 1900's in Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin, and Michigan, these compelling, historically accurate stories attract reluctant, average, and gifted readers. Both boys and girls identify with characters who face danger and mystery while learning to deal with peer pressure, family relationships, and the need for unconditional love and forgiveness.
"In her Northwoods Adventures, Lois Walfrid Johnson blends regional history, positive values, and engaging characters with mystery to boot. The same blend occurs in the Riverboat series, making the Underground Railroad very real to young readers. Our family gathered around and read each of her books aloud."
