“Ken, working on his uncle’s farm in Vermont, first sees Snow Cloud at sundown . It was no
ghost, but a horse which had been badly treated and now ran wild on the mountain. Slowly Ken begins to tame him, gradually coaxing him back from his unbroken wildness. Once known as a dangerous animal, Snow Cloud becomes a hero when he helps to bring home a sick man, found lying unconscious in the snow.

Jack and Teddy buy a carnival horse, but they can’t let Jack’s father know, so they hide the horse in the woods. Then the horse, Apache, gets away, and after he runs riot in the garden, Jack’s parents know all about the horse. Despite the fact Teddy and Jack can do marvellous things with the horse, the town they live in can’t ignore the fact that Jack and Teddy are different colours.
