The No More Night Mares… A Dream of Freedom
Written by: Dawn Van Zant
Illustrated by: Kim McElroy
Meet Eclipse the black stallion and his brave mares: Comet, Moonbeam and Lucky Stars. Horse people will love this mythical herd of mares destined to light up the night sky. Pursued by hunters for their magic and power, the Night Mares and their stallion are chased to the edge of a cliff. The black stallion, Eclipse, summons the moon to answer his wild call. Mysteriously, the night mist unravels from around the moon to form a path to safety in the stars above. It becomes the destiny of the Night Mares to live in the stars, watching over children and horses in the land below.
"Night mares prance brilliantly against a background of a black sky and glowing stars to light our way to a time long-forgotten. Gaze up into their bright lights and they will fill you with a magical power. Listen to the call of the wild herd and remember… We don’t have to be afraid of the dark."
The book promotes awareness on wild horse conservation efforts and lists several organizations making great efforts to save wild horses.
