Deep in the heart of the canyon, Little Pinto is just three months old. Still a bit unsteady on his feet, he must be ready to travel with his family, a band of rare, wild mustangs, as they search for water along the desert flats. Led by the colt's father, Old White Face, the band roams free but must always be alert for signs of danger. At his signal they are ready to scatter to safety, whether a strange stallion threatens the harem or a whining plane swoops overhead. But can Little Pinto keep up?

Booklist Review: "PreS^-Gr. 2. Thundering wild horses leap off the pages of this handsome offering from the team who created Red Wolf Country (1996). On the opening spread, just-born Little Pinto learns to stand and nurse. By the next page, he's off and running with the herd through gorgeous desert canyons. London adds suspense when a series of interruptions startle the herd at a river--first an aggressive, unknown stallion and then a plane used to round up horses. Then Little Pinto takes a frightening plunge into the rushing white water; when he makes it to the other side, he is comforted by his mother. The words are spare, immediate, and informative, and San Souci's lavish, sharp watercolor artwork brings children close to the wild herd and the blistering desert heat. An afterword touches on the horse's history in North America, and a glossary defines words used in the text. Just as thrilling as the horses themselves are their wide-ranging travels across the austere landscapes. A must for cowboy wannabe's and horse fans; suggest this for science units, as well. --Gillian Engberg"
