Misty of Chincoteague

Misty of Chincoteague, by Marguerite Henry

Misty_of_Chincoteague_coverPaul and Maureen Beebee are orphaned and go to live with their grandparents in Virginia. When they become enraptured by a wild Chincoteague pony on Assateague Island, they determine to get her for their own. But capturing and taming the wild mare is more difficult than the Beebee children anticipated.

This delightful award-winning book is a must read for all elementary children. Inspired by real events, there is enough fact behind the fiction to make this into a unit study on the history of Assateague ponies.
