Ride the Wild Storm
BY MARJORIE REYNOLDS
Illustrated by LORENCE F. BJORKLUND
As David Lang leaves for Nantucket Island he feels lonely, angry, thoroughly miserable. His parents are getting a divorce, his mother is ill, and he has been sent off alone—on the day before his twelfth birthday—to spend the summer with a family he has never met. Who will remember his birthday, or care if he has an asthma attack? Don't his parents want him anymore?
The Macys turn out to be a warm and affectionate family with a son about David's age. Bill Macy takes David swimming, sailing, and exploring. And David discovers the very special joy of riding and caring for Salty, a gentle gray mare that had belonged to Bill's cousin. But Salty is to be sold, and David's desperation grows as the day of the sale draws near.
In a Nantucket summer filled with new experiences, excitement, and even danger David develops self-confidence as he earns the right to have a horse and a life of his own.
"MARJORIE REYNOLDS' name on a book is a guarantee of a warm welcome for the horse story it contains."—Lavinia Russ, Publishers' Weekly.
