Grades 4 & up

The only thing Joseph has left of his family is his beloved horse Sarah. When she is sold behind his back, he sets off on a quest across Washington state to find her. On his first day out, he meets a Chinese boy about his age who has lost the people he was traveling with. Although they don’t speak the same language, Ah-kee and Joseph set out together. Their journey takes them much farther than they had expected, and they encounter a variety of situations (bears, snow, rushing rapids) and people, both good and bad. This is a fast paced adventure with a satisfying ending that will keep readers’ interest from the start. Highly recommended for grades 4 & up.
