The Girl Who Remembered Horses

In a world that has forgotten the ancient bond between horses and humans, can one girl’s dreams make people remember?

Several generations into the future, Sahara travels with her clan in a barren environment where recyclables are bartered for sustenance, and few remember horses or their connection to humans. But Sahara has recurring visions of riding astride on magnificent animals that run like the wind.

With the help of Evan, a young herder from the Gardener’s Camp, Sahara discovers a crumbling book containing pictures of humans riding horses and learns her visions are real. Confronting a group of hunters led by hot-headed Dojo, Sahara rescues a wounded horse, but the animal escapes before it can be tamed.

Sahara is labeled a foolish dreamer and almost gives up her quest. Following horse tracks into a remote ravine, she finds wild dogs attacking a dying mare, and must drive them off in order to save the foal. Now she must attempt to raise the young animal, finally convince her clan of the ancient bond between horses and humans, and learn the secret of her true identity.

About the Author

Linda Benson is the author of two previous novels for children, THE HORSE JAR and FINDING CHANCE. She has always been an animal lover, and whenever she sits down to write, a dog seems to jump into the middle of the story, or a horse gallops through. THE GIRL WHO REMEMBERED HORSES is her first novel published as an eBook.
Ms. Benson has owned and ridden horses for most of her life, competing in sports from jumping to barrel racing to endurance. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, as well two dogs, two cats, and two donkeys named Mr. Chocolate and Mr. Big. She loves to read and write, and her favorite food is chocolate.
Watch for her new novel, called SIX DEGREES OF LOST, coming out as an eBook in June 2012. It is suitable for ages ten and up, and it’s about lost animals finding a home, and so much more.
