Blue Canyon Horse Author:Clark, Ann Nolan The night is still. — The stars above are far away. — The night winds hush the noisy waters. — The canyon is shadow-filled and still. — In this quiet meadow under the mesa the little mare is grazing. — One night, the young mare fled from the canyon pasture and the Indian boy who loved her and took care of her -- clattering up the stony trail, across ... more »the mesa, to run with the wild herd. But when the canyon field was green again, she came back with her colt, drawn by a loyalty deeper than her longing to be free.
Ann Clark loves this wild country and has spent a great deal of her life there, working with the Indian children at the Intermountain School in Utah. There she became interested in the work of Mr. Houser, and Indian artist teaching his own people. Between them, they have made a book as expressive and fleet and sturdy as the little mare herself.« less
