A wild horse, and a golden eagle befriend a young native girl of the North American plains, Little Red Moon. Listen to her thoughts and dreams. See the sparkling brook and hear the sound of hooves on the rocky surfaces. Taste the dust-filled air from the parched grassland, and feel the coarseness of EagleHorse’s mane as you grasp it tightly.
Their story together is her story; her journey is also their journey.
Where will it end?

A Note from the Author
When my Granddaughter was very small I told her we would make a book about EagleHorse. I spent quite a few years writing and rewriting the book with the help of friends and family. Then I began taking pictures of the kinds of things to draw and compose to fit the story. I knew a lot of what I wanted but I am grateful for all the help I got along the way. The one thing I take partial credit for is perseverance.
I hope you will enjoy the story and the images. For me the book and it’s creation have been a gift. It has been a real joy (and a lot of work) to write and draw and plan and paint and revise. I’ve had to rethink some aspects of the presentation. I’ve surely had some great advice that has made it what it turned out to be. Thank you all.
