Becky’s Horse

Four Winds Press, New York, 1975, 152 pp

Scholastic, New York, pb, 1975


Becky daydreams - always about horses. But dreaming of them is not enough

for her. She is determined to own a real horse, despite living in the city during the

Depression years. Then Becky enters a contest. The prize is $250 or a horse.
When Becky wins, she is faced with a very difficult decision.

Winifred Madison wrote several YA books, of which Becky’s Horse is one. Alas I haven’t been able to find out any biographical information about the author. If anyone is able to help, do please get in touch.


Finding the book: easy to find.
