Twelve-year-old Lucky Prescott craves adventure, but as a young
lady of society, she’s only been allowed to experience adventure through
books. That is, until one fateful day when Lucky, her father and her
aunt leave their neat-and-tidy city life and travel to their new home
out west—the Wild West.
At first Lucky is
excited, but during the long train ride to her new hometown of Miradero,
she begins to worry. What if she doesn’t make any new friends? Everyone
in the West rides horses, but she’s never been allowed to even sit on
one. How can she possibly fit in? Anxious about the future, Lucky looks
out the train window and sees a majestic wild stallion. When their eyes
meet, she senses a connection. But when the stallion is caught by
wranglers, Lucky’s heart breaks. And when she next sees the stallion,
he’s tied to a post, refusing to be ‘broken in’.
Spirit Riding Free: The Adventure Begins
is the story of a girl and a wild horse, equally out of place in a
strange, new world, but equally fierce and brave. With each other to
lean on, will these two free spirits be able to find a home together?
