Mrs. MackBook - 1998
Patricia has waited all of her ten years for this summer -- she is finally going to learn to ride a horse! But when her father drives her to a shabby stable in run-down Dogpatch, she can't believe her eyes. The tough-looking kids and scary old man next door don't help. How can she ride here? Then along comes Mrs. Mack with her snakeskin boots and big Southern smile. She knows everything about horses -- and kids. And, sure enough, Pat learns more than she ever imagined -- not just about horses, but people too.Patricia Polacco shares a story of her childhood hero in this tribute to a woman who knew that working with and riding horses could test young people, and change them in remarkable ways.
