by | Read by Edward Herrmann

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1975

This story is set in the spectacular landscape of the barrier islands off the coast of Maryland. Edward Herrmann's expressive narration takes the listener through elaborate details of rural island life as well as the lives of the wild ponies of the area. Maureen and Paul Beebe, who live with their grandparents, dream of owning the wildest mare of all, "The Phantom," and they set out to earn enough money to buy her in the annual "pony penning" auction. One can easily differentiate the many island elders, always ready with advice, from the eager children who work hard to make their dreams come true. This classic is well served by the skilled Herrmann, who combines earnestness with a sense of humor. R.H.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
