Riding Freedom
by Pam Munoz Ryan

A reissue of Pam Munoz Ryan's bestselling backlist with a distinctive new author treatment.

Beginning with the death of her parents, Charlotte faces many problems, but nothing can destroy her dreams.  In fact, as she goes through the fire, she grows stronger and more determined.  Holding fast to the love of a horse, the support of a friend, and the wisdom of an elderly stable master who had escaped slavery, Charlotte chooses to seek her own freedom and manages to ride into history. 

"In this fast-paced, courageous, and inspiring story, readers adventure with Charlotte Parkhurst as she first finds work as a stable hand, becomes a famous stage-coach driver (performing brave feats and outwitting bandits), finds love as a woman but later resumes her identity as a man after the loss of a baby and the tragic death of her husband, and ultimately settles out west on the farm she'd dreamed of having since childhood. It wasn't until after her death that anyone discovered she was a woman." (from Amazon)
