A Wild Ride: The Adventures of Misty and Moxie Wyoming by Niki Danforth centers on Moxie Wyoming who is turning ten. She had always wanted to be like Granny Rose and imagined herself barrel racing and winning first prize, just as Granny Rose had done long ago. On her birthday she got a horse, but Misty was not what she expected. Misty had a sway back, was more than thirty years old, and reigned as the queen of the herd. In her day she would always be out front, leading the herd back to the corral, but now she was retired from the Darwin Ranch near Jackson. One day Moxie and her best friend, Pickle, heard about some wild Mustangs in the surrounding areas. She and Pickle embarked on an adventure to find out more about these wild Mustangs. In the meantime, Moxie began to learn more about Misty. One day she discovered that Misty is no ordinary horse; she has magical powers. Misty, Moxie and Pickle decide to work together to see how they can help free the wild Mustangs ... and the adventure begins.
A Wild Ride: The Adventures of Misty and Moxie Wyoming by Niki Danforth is a great children’s book because it takes you to another world, from ranch life to Misty the magical horse. I also like how Niki provided some illustrations to help tell the story. These illustrations help you to better visualize the essence of A Wild Ride. This book is ideal for those readers who also want to learn more about some of the elements of ranching.
