Golden Moon shares telepathic images and recollections about birth, mid-western ranch life, running Mustang wild and coming home to a boy's love.
A horse rancher promises his motherless son, Trent, that he may choose any foal for his own. Narrated from the point of view of Goldie, the palomino filly the boy falls in love with, the story unfolds with a unique hint of telepathy, vivid descriptions from the moment she is born, and continues as she learns about mankind, the ranch and other life lessons.
When half grown, Goldie is stolen by a mustang stallion and added to his wild herd. She encounters a whole new struggle for life from a yearling's perspective. Staying alive and growing up keeps her too busy to think about missing Trent's love.
An older herd mare, Madera, adopts and protects Goldie, but her old knee injuries make it hard to survive the harshness of freedom. After two happy years of living wild, Goldie realizes that to save Madera, they must return to the captivity of ranch life.
Goldie's loving reunion with Trent changes everything for her. She discovers that captivity can be just as interesting as freedom, especially when new adventures include horse rustlers, stallion fights and a boy that adores you!
