By Jenny Oldfield
An action packed animal adventure series, with a wild and dangerous location and a heroine who lives, breathes and sleeps horses.
A recipe for trouble for ranch owner, Sandy Scott. But her daughter, Kirstie is undaunted by her mother's warnings. She's at her happiest riding the trails through the tall forests and deep canyons of the Meltwater Range...
Kirstie is pleased that Skylark and her foal Hummingbird become the favourite subject of artist Leon Powell during his visit to Half-Moon Ranch. But tragedy strikes when a freak snowstorm traps the bay mare and her foal freezes to death. An outraged Powell sets about exposing the Scotts for their "cruelty". But Matt Scott isn't convinced that Hummingbird's death was quite so clear-cut. Meanwhile, poor Skylark pines for her dead foal...
Born and brought up in Harrogate, Yorkshire, Jenny Oldfield went on to study English at Birmingham University, where she did research on the Bronte Novels and on Children's Literature. She then worked as a teacher, before deciding to concentrate on writing. She writes novels for both children and adults and, when she can escape from her desk, likes to spend time outdoors. She loves the countryside and enjoys walking, gardening, playing tennis, riding and travelling with her two daughters, Kate and Eve.
