This epic horse story, in the tradition of BLACK STALLION, marks exciting new territory for award-winning author Pam Munoz Ryan.

Format: 4 CDs, Unabridged

Maya is a captive. In Grandmother's house in California, every word and action is strictly monitored, and even Maya's memories of her mother have been erased -- except within the imaginary world she has created. A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a tobiano Paint horse called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. She embodies the spirit of the wild -- and she holds the key to Maya's memories. How Maya's and Artemisia's lives intertwine, like a braided rein, is at the heart of this richly drawn adventure about captivity and freedom, about holding on and letting go.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The narration adroitly shifts from childlike to a more serious tone as segments are told from the perspective of the wild mare, Artemisia, whose path will intertwine with Maya’s.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Young readers will learn empathy and compassion not only from the humans but from the horses as well. It is a story about the connection of all living things, and one can be thankful for the writers who recognize the importance of actualizing that concept.”

    VOYA

  • “Both the descriptions of the mustangs’ life and of Maya’s growth from an angry self-centered liar into a kind and honest girl capable of making difficult decisions are handled with skill and realism.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The story will enthrall young horse lovers while also pleasing fans of Ryan’s previous work featuring strong female protagonists who solve their own problems in a unique way.”
