Ein Pferd fűr Gabriel, Arena Verlag Wűrzburg
Gabriel is half Nez Percé and half white. He doesn’t know who his parents were, or what happened to them. Gabriel discovers who he is, and how he chooses to live his life. Through his love and care of the wild horse, Flash, Gabriel realises his choice is between right and wrong.
Agnes V Ranney, as far as I am aware, has written just the one book, a coming of age story about a half Nez Percé boy, living in Idaho during the troubled times when settlers were moving into the North West.
Finding the book:both hardback and paperback editions are easy to find, and usually very reasonably priced. The book was not published in the UK.
