Cathy Kennedy spent the first years of her life growing up in Pennsylvania before moving to South Florida at age 17. Her book, Meeting of the Mustangs, was started during her teenage years in Pennsylvania and would not be completed until many years later.
The story of the wild mustangs is somewhat reflective of her life living in the country, where her family owned horses. She wanted to complete the book for younger readers who have a love for animals, and finally convinced herself that she should continue the story where she'd stopped writing many years before.
She currently lives in Ohio with her husband and three rescued tuxedo cats.

Black Beauty for the modern American reader, Cathy Kennedy’s The Meeting of the Mustangs allows readers a very convincing view of life through the eyes of a gorgeous wild black horse. The language is simple and evocative, with lovely descriptions of scenery, animals and people, and a delightful sense for how and when an animal might feel frightened or brave. There’s a nice circular story arc that takes the horse from wild to pleasingly wise. And there’s a lovely feeling of life and the value of life.
The horse of this story travels the country, experiences the pain of the natural world’s terrors and the world of man, plus the joys of both, and grows to a maturity that is always something different from human—a very believable portrayal of very different emotions. The humans run the gamut from kind to cruel, intelligent to unforgiving, and wise to foolish. And the story leaves the reader glad to have met and known a wonderful horse.
Great for middle-grade readers and above—a charming story, filled with life and vitality.

I enjoyed this story about the journey of a young black horse up to a strong black mustang. There were struggles along the way, but it was a heartwarming story and I liked the ending of the story. Thank you very much for writing this story and for giving me a coupon for the book for my honest review. I really enjoyed the book! Thanks!
