The horse is over 16 hands tall, long-legged, and well proportioned. Heis also suspicious, guarded, touchy, cruel, and a challenge to allhumans who would deal with him. Thirteen-year old Bird is a challenge tothose around her. An elective mute since the age of six, she has livedwith Aunt Hannah for the past two years because her mother simply couldnot cope with her. While Bird refuses to speak to humans, she has an uncanny knack forcommunicating with animals of all kinds. But Sundancer is a woundedanimal with a story he is not ready to share. It is a challenge for Birdto get through to him, but they soon establish a wonderfully rewardingrapport. Spurred on by this, Bird accepts her motherā?Ts renewedapproaches and eventually starts speaking again. Shelley Petersonā?Ts fourth young-adult novel is a powerfully told taleof confusion, attempted fraud, and suspense. But above all, it is a taleof the blossoming of a difficult horse and a difficult child whotogether find the strength to overcome their problems. Loosely based onthe story of one of the authorā?Ts own horses, Sundancer clearlyreflects her own love for and knowledge of horses and their foibles.Recommended especially for horse lovers and those caring for childrenand teens with challenges.
