About the Author

Rosalyn Schanzer has written and illustrated several outstanding children’s books, including How We Crossed the West, which received starred reviews from School Library Journal and Publishers Weekly. As a child, she always enjoyed reading stories about horses, so by the time she was twelve years old, she’d read all of the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley; she then decided to study the muscle structures of horses so she could draw them herself. She lives with her husband and children in Fairfax Station, Virginia.
