Cheyenne Medicine Hat

She was a Medicine Hat mustang, so named nearly two centuries earlier by Sioux warriors of the Western plains who believed her markings were sacred shields to protect them in battle.
So begins the story of Medicine Hat, a mare responsible for leading a herd of wild horses across the rocky expanses and open vistas of the American West.

    Powerful and emotional picturebook story, October 7, 2006

    This review is from: Cheyenne Medicine Hat (Hardcover)

    Written by Brian Heinz and illustrated by Gregory Manchess, Cheyenne Medicine Hat is the story of a mare leading a herd of wild horses amid the rocky lands and the prairie of the American West. Named Medicine Hat for her markings that Sioux warriors believed were sacred protective shields in battle, she must help her fellow mustangs survive the search for food and water, attacks from predators such as cougars, and perhaps most threatening of all, the advance of horse wranglers. The utterly stunning, full-color illustrations distinguish this powerful and emotional picturebook story, featuring text involved enough to be ideal for young readers who are almost ready to move on to chapter books.
