The girl who loved wild horses/ Paul Goble

THE GIRL WHO LOVED WILD HORSES written and illustrated by Paul Goble combines vibrant artwork and a mature writing style to tell a "coming of age" story. This truly inspirational, Native American legend shows us that if we pursue what we truly love long enough and with all our heart we will achieve it.  With each turn of the page we are taken along the path of this girl's passage from the security of family and village through the stormy, frightening, sad and exhilarating times leading her to the Independence of adulthood.  Myra commented that the book took her through breath-holding emotions to a big, big smile as the girl who loved horses finally becomes what she loves.  
Don't we all want to become what we love?
