When eighth grader Abby Lovitt looks out at those pure-gold rolling hills, she knows there's no place she'd rather be than her family's ranch— even with all the tough work of tending to nine horses. When he and Abby clear four feet easy as pie, heads start to turn at the ring— buyers' heads— and Abby knows Daddy won't turn down a good offer. From the Hardcover edition. At eight months, his rough foal coat has shed out, leaving a smooth, rich silk, like chocolate. But some chores are no perform at all, like grooming young Jack. A mystery unfolds, a lot more surprising than Abby could ever expect. The letter states that Jack's mare could have been sold to the Lovitts as stolen goods. As for Black George, such a very good horse, it turns out he's a all-natural jumper. Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley raises horses of her own, and her affection and expertise shine via in this inviting horse novel for young readers, set in 1960s California horse country and featuring characters from The Georges in addition to the Jewels. Then a letter arrives from a private investigator, and suddenly Abby stands to lose not a single horse but two. Will she lose her beloved Jack to his rightful owners?
