Para Lee Brock worked in television and radio, and produced The 4-H Showcase. This programme featured animals of all sorts, but Para Lee Brock’s particular love was horses, which of course feature in Sahani. The book is set in the Smokies, which Para Lee Brock knew well, having hiked and ridden the trails many times. One of the characters in Sahani was also based on reality: Miss Marlin was inspired by a New York-based friend of the author’s. The horse, Sahani, is however, entirely imaginary.
Finding the book:very easy to find.
