Only Dusty can ride the Snow Pony. And no one but Dusty will trust her. A tough and tender novel about a family's struggle to hold together during harsh times, and fourteen-year-old Dusty's faith in a wild horse they said could never be tamed.
Three years of drought have reduced the Riley's farm to a dirt patch and strained the family to breaking point. A trip to the mountains to muster their cattle promises a fresh start, but sudden violence erupts into the peaceful landscape.
Now Dusty and her beautiful brumby are tested as never before.
