Publisher Description:

When Macadoo is just a colt, he challenges his father, a huge Belgian stallion, in order to protect his mother and the rest of the herd. From that moment on, Mac knows that his purpose in life is to help and serve others however he can.

Though Macadoo endures much adversity--leaving the only home he's ever known, being separated from his dam, and surviving an auction that for many horses is their final stop before the slaughterhouse--he finds the courage to "walk on" through even the most difficult circumstances. And he eventually finds a sense of home and good companions, first with Izzy, Poppa, and their mules, then at the Maury River Stables, where he learns to teach children therapeutic riding and vaulting.

Told from Macadoo's point of view and featuring beloved characters from Chancey of the Maury River, this is a story that horse lovers will cherish.


Contributor Bio(s): Amateau, Gigi: - Gigi Amateau is the author of the first book in the Horses of the Maury River series, Chancey of the Maury River, which was a William Allen White Master List selection, as well as Come August, Come Freedom; A Certain Strain of Peculiar; and Claiming Georgia Tate. Of the inspiration behind Macadoo's story, she says, "Horses entered our family when my daughter was four years old. Fifteen years later, I can testify that we're a stronger, happier, healthier family because of it. Being around horses requires us to bring our best, most aware, most generous selves into the moment. Even though the role of the horse has changed over the centuries, I am in awe of the many ways horses help people today." A recipient of the Theresa Pollak Prize for Excellence in the Arts, Gigi Amateau lives in Richmond, Virginia.
