When a young mustang named Shadow is rounded up by helicopter and adopted by a local family, he has a decision to make: will he embrace this new way of life, or will he find his way back into the wilds of Arizona’s Cerbat Mountains?
Born into a world defined by close family bonds and rife with mountain lions and quicksand, Shadow grows up in a harsh landscape that is filled with danger and wonder at every turn. After he is banished from his family herd, he must learn to live among a ragtag group of colts. Little does he know that his days filled with fighting and sunbathing are soon to become a thing of the past. Set against the jaw-dropping landscape of the Arizona desert, this middle grade fiction novel tells a poignant coming-of-age story that will resonate with any child who has struggled to find their herd.
