Title: Backyard Horse Tales 2 Frosty and the Night Stalker
Publication date: 10/11/12
ASIN: B009QOFKGA
A Kindle Edition

This story opens in the time of May 1968 at a place called Hi Lo Farms. It’s a non-fiction, fantasy tale of a horse and/or horses. And is presented in a 1st person structure – and this format is spoken from the mouth of the horse (an animal’s view). In its reading, the reader will definitely take a journey through space and time. One doesn’t have to be a horse lover to get pleasure out of its story. The book will give enjoyment to ALL who reads its tale. While reading the story, one may want to stop reading just to embrace its pictorial characters. (The Author and Illustrator have done a marvelous job in capturing the drawings, I think.) Personally, I could visualize this book being housed on every school shelf – to be read during scheduled “story time” periods.
I commend the Author for her descriptive manner. The structure is well-written, and does put one in the moment. Truly, great job for both the Writer and Illustrator.

Review of J.M.Anton's book
Title: Backyard Horse Tales 2, Frosty and the Night Stalker
ASIN: B009QOFKGA
Kindle edition, Illustrated by Sandy Shipley, copyright 2012
This book is suitable for teenagers and adults alike. It starts with the thoughts of a young Appaloosa horse as he is anesthetized for his gelding in the 1960s. During his unconscious period he sees a ghostlike figure of a dark horse with a rider who is unrecognizable. The story continues when the young horse meets his first human owner, Marcie, and a relationship starts. Then the book, and the horse, now named Frosty, move to the Hi-Lo Farms where Frosty spends the next 3 years in training, and at horse shows. Frosty asks the other geldings if they also had dreams while they were down for their operations. It seems that Frosty was the only one. Soon, the owner of Hi-Lo Farms tells Marcie one day that he thinks Frosty has an old soul. The dream keeps bothering Frosty until he begins to think deeper about the whole affair.
This takes the reader to 1869 when a new Appaloosa is born into the heard owned by the Nez Perce Native American tribe. He becomes Nightstalker, the horse of one of the braves, Standing Bear, and the story of the Native Americans unfolds.
The Author reveals the sorrow of these people as the white Europeans tried to perform genocide on the entire race. Throughout the book the reader is led back and forth from the 1960s to the 1870s, and the story becomes more entrancing with every page.
This book starts as an interesting tale, and moves to a very competent historical review of the late 19th century in our country. Little known facts from history, and from modern geography are combined to make this book quite compelling. Teenagers will be introduced to a factual history of our west, and adults will have their eyes opened by this author. It is recommended that everyone read this book because it is a very good adventure story, and it corrects many of the inaccuracies that we have learned about our history.

Definitely, one book that needs to be read.
