1st edition hardcover in dj. Not exlib. 181 pgs. Lightly bumped at extremities, illust dj with wear likewise. Story of a deaf boy who became so after an accident and his new found friendship with his unwanted gift of Tuppence, a Dartmoor pony to try and help him adjust to his new, silent world. At first he wants nothing to do with the pony at all, until it snows, and he fights through the snowy night to get the pony to shelter. From that point on, Martin and Tuppence's relationship develops. Disaster comes when Tuppence escapes back to the moors one day, and the wild mares from her old herd turn on her, and she is so badly hurt it looks as if she will die. Martin nurses her for months, and at first it looks as though she has recovered a little, but then she unexpectedly turns vicious: the explanation for this is a surprise for the whole family.
