"Calico Horses and the Patchwork Trail"
When the Spirit of Horse speaks to a ten-year-old girl through her dreams and calico patches magically appear as if from nowhere, the residents of Saddlecrest, Nevada have a genuine mystery on their hands.
It's the story of how a girl ripped apart by divorce helps the wild mustangs torn from the range. Together they face uncertainties brought on by the decisions of others.
Carrie's mom decides to uproot her from their familiar Jersey Shore home and move to the dusty deserts of Nevada. The move is as prickly to Carrie as the cactus beside her new home. But something mysterious greets her when she closes her eyes each night—like a winding path, her dreams guide her to the horses of the Calico Mountains. Are her developing psychic abilities bringing visits from horse spirits or is her troubled mind playing tricks on her? Her new friend Milla has nightmares of her own—she's the daughter of a government official known as "The Horse Killer."
How can a few children make a difference to the plight of the foals snatched from their homes without warning? Like the tiny patches of cloth that adorn a calico quilt the clues draw them all together. Follow the Calico Horses as they lead us down the trail of adversity to the peaceful pastures found by helping one another.

As I read your book I tapped into my inner child who constantly loved horses from a distance but unable to have one of my own. It helped heal the old hurts as I embraced your impeccable love and spirit as a young girl on a personal path to enlightenment through horse 'tales'.

In this lovely tale, "Calico Horses and the Patchwork Trail" the author teaches us about the very real ordeal America's wild horses daily face in order to survive. In language targeting pre-teens but with lessons that will resonate with all of us, the book describes the capture and removal of the horses from the range and a young girls struggle to understand and help them-as she tries to understand the changes taking place in her own life as a result of her parents break up and divorce. As we learn about the BLM's sometimes brutal handling of the wild horse population and the reactions of the people fighting to help them, we learn that meditation, perseverance and love can make a difference. With honesty, compassion and a little magical realism along the way, the author gently teaches us some of life's lessons as we gain some insight about America's wild horses. This is a book about struggle, survival and succeeding.
