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 v good read for girl or boy... great book for horse fans!

A little bit of history of the Eastern Shore and lots of action w/ a family and the Mother horse and her colt

Two children, Paul and Maureen, work together to bring the wild pony, Phantom, and her newborn foal, Misty, to Chincoteague Island


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.

Marguerite Henry's Newbery Honor Book has captivated generations of boys and girls both with its thrilling descriptions of true incidents from the tiny island of Chincoteague, and its realistic yet wonderfully magical atmosphere. This story of an animal brought into captivity poignantly reveals the powerful opposing forces of humans and nature.
