Fifteen-year-old Evan Kendrick has traveled from New Mexico Territory to Galveston with his father, Edward, who will be competing in a horse race thatâs offering a $3,000 prize to the winner. But a terrible accident seriously injures Evanâs drunken father, forcing Evan to saddle up instead.This is no ordinary race. Running from Texas to New England, its course is eighteen hundred milesâmaybe even longerâand Evan will be riding a barely half-broke mustang stallion that he and his father caught. Heâll be competing against all breeds of horses, ridden by professionals and amateurs from across the world.Although Evan has learned a lot about horses from his father, Edward has also taught his son that horses are good for nothingââYou ride one to death, you get another and do the same.âLuckily, but somewhat reluctantly, the raceâs chief veterinarian, Patrick Jack, takes Evan under his wing. But a horse doctor can teach a hot-headed teenager only so much.For six weeks, Evan Kendrick will learn a lot about horses, riding, friendship, lifeâand himself. Heâll form alliances with two of his competitors, a Negro Seminole Indian scout named Dindie Remo and a hard-drinking young woman, Arena Lancaster, whose life has been harder than even young Evanâs. Evan will make enemies, too. Heâll see new country, and heâll discover what America can offer, both good and bad. But to win this raceâto even survive itâEvan will have to put his trust in a tough stallion the color of traderâs whiskey: a mustang named Taos Lightning.
