New! The Stone HorseThe Stone Horse

A just-born Zuni fetish horse—not the prettiest animal on The Carver’s worktable—yearns to find the special human he’s meant to help with his magical powers. Doubt and enemies block him. Dreams and the powwow trail test his resolve. Using his wits, discovering truths, he makes friends with a kindly blue bear and leaps over limitations and heart-stopping danger to find his perfect home.
