(Recorded Books, Feb. 26, 2009)
A terrible storm is brewing, and the tide is rising quickly. Meanwhile, Misty - the famous mare of Chincoteague - is about to give birth! Will Misty and her baby survive? This is the thrilling story of how a hurricane destroyed the wild herds of Assateague, and how strength and love helped rebuild them. Misty of Chincoteague has been delighting millions since its publication in 1947. Like the favorite classic, this sequel features siblings Paul and Maureen Beebe's special relationship with their ponies, and is filled with fascinating horse lore and amusing regional color. Both books are richly narrated by John McDonough, whose talent for conveying genuine emotion greatly enhances their drama. Marguerite Henry is the Newbery Medal-winning author of many beloved horse stories, including Justin Morgan Had a Horse.
