Good personal copy An action-packed story of War Paint, a wild pony that roamed the Western prairies in early days. The story takes him from his birth to the time when he is owned by an Indian brave.

You'll see the colt as he first follows his mother on unsteady legs, in his first encounter with a wolf, in later encounters with fire and flood - and finally in the Indian camp.
