An instant New York Times and Indie bestseller!A stand-alone companion to the New York Times and Indie bestsellers A Wolf Called Wander and A Whale of the Wild. Exiled from his band, a young wild horse must find his way across treacherous terrain to reunite with his family after being captured for the Pony Express. The Horn Book called A Horse Named Sky “engrossing and fast-paced.” This Voice of the Wilderness Novel is an enthralling survival story about wild horses, family bonds, and a changing environment. 

Young colt Sky was born with the urge to run. Alongside his band, he moves across the range searching for fresh water and abundant grazing. But humans have begun to encroach on Sky’s homelands, bringing farming, mining, logging, and construction, and poisoning the water.With fewer resources to share, Sky knows that he must leave if his family is to survive. He hopes that one day, he’ll be strong and brave enough to return and challenge the stallion to lead the herd. For now, being a lone wild horse in a vast landscape is not easy, and things get even more dangerous when Sky is captured and forced to run for the Pony Express. Now, against all odds, Sky must find a way to escape and reunite with his family.A Horse Named Sky is the stand-alone companion novel to Rosanne Parry’s New York Times bestsellers A Wolf Called Wander and A Whale of the Wild. Chronicling the perils of westward expansion and the grueling Pony Express from the perspective of a wild horse, A Horse Named Sky is a gripping animal survival story about family, courage, trust, leadership, and loyalty. Illustrated in black-and-white throughout and impeccably researched, A Horse Named Sky is an excellent read-aloud for parents and teachers, and a wonderful choice for fans of DreamWorks’ Spirit and Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty. Includes a map and extensive backmatter.
