Description
In the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, in the year 1900, friendships between children of white "intruders" and their Choctaw and Chickasaw schoolmates had to cross a deep cultural divide. It was also a time when public ignorance could make a mockery of the ambitions of a boy with dwarfism and a place where children had to grow up fast. Trouble begins when a beautiful wild stallion, a supposed man killer, is rescued by two adventurous young brothers. When the stallion is identified as a rare Choctaw horse, the question of who should own him threatens to destroy cherished friendships. Then a courageous decision by a twelve year old boy allows the ancient spirit of Buster, their Choctaw Pony survivor, to live on for future generations to love and respect.
