As part of a wild herd of horses, Tera remembers well when her mother was captured. When rumors begin that ranchers are in the area, Tera feels it would be safer to hide on her own than to let herself be captured among the herd.
She isn't prepared for the lasso that harnesses her as she hides behind the willows. She's even more surprised by the fact of finding her mother at the ranch she's been taken to!
Tera and her mother spend months as plow horses, but Tera never loses sight of her dreams to free both of them from the locked pen. When she devises a plan to open the gate, both Tera and her older and weaker mother make their escape to rejoin their family in the wild.
TERA'S DAWN is a sweet story that will appeal mostly to young horse lovers, but even those who don't have an obsession with horses will rejoice with Tera as she rediscovers both her mother and the joy of being free.
This is a great book to read together with your child or for an advanced beginning reader.
