One of my most favorite books from my childhood, a beautifully written story with a bit of a coming of age theme. I read this book numerous times as a child and was thrilled to finally see the islands of Chincoteague and Assateague in real life during a family vacation in later years. A true classic.

A horse CLASSIC!

Wonderful, wonderful book! My 4th graders loved Paul and Maureen Beebee and fell in love with both Misty and the Phantom!

On an island off the coasts of Virginia and Maryland lives a centuries-old band of wild ponies. Among them is the most mysterious of all, Phantom, a rarely seen mare that eludes all efforts to capture her--that is, until a young boy and girl lay eyes on her and determine that they can't live without her. The frenzied roundup that follows on the next "Pony Penning Day" does indeed bring Phantom into their lives, in a way they never would have suspected. Phantom would forever be a creature of the wild. But her gentle, loyal colt Misty is another story altogether.
