Set in the Dust Bowl of the 1930's, here is a moving story that Parents Magazine calls a "poignant tale of how a little girl with a big heart saves the family farm and inspires an entire town."

Leah's pony is swift and strong. Together they ride, crossing through cornfields and over pastures, chasing cattle as they gallop under summer skies. Then one year, the corn grows no taller than a man's thumb. Locusts blacken the sky, and the earth turns to dust. Gone were the cornfields and pastures where Leah and her pony used to ride. It is the beginning of the great drought, and Leah's father faces losing the family farm. But Leah's bravely decides to act. This deeply felt story, vividly portrayed through stunning oil paintings, tells the story of a selfless young woman and her sacrifice for her family.
