Blurb on dust jacket: As the big dapple mare came out of the turn at a gallop, the girl crouched on her back, braced her feet and carefully straightened up. Together they flashed around the practice arena, the mare galloping steadily, the girl standing on her rump, arms raised. With a whoop she vaulted into the air, did a somersault, and landed on her feet.

Tishtry is a slave girl with onlyn one goal - to buy her feedom for her family and for herself, no easy task. Yarbro makes the vast and varied ancient Roman Empire the backdrop for her story of this young slave girl's struggles.

I Say: Good historical fiction with an imagination catching story and wonderful research.
