In Satchi and Little Star by Donna Marie Seim, a young island girl watches as a herd of eight wild horses trot past her gate. One little horse has a white star on his forehead. She yearns to have a horse of her very own. But, when she asks her mama and papa they both say, “Satchi, wild horses are meant to be wild.”
Satchi decides that she will catch and tame Little Star all by herself. Through joys and trials, the reader follows her down the path that leads Satchi to understand what true friendship really is.
Inspired by the beautiful wild horses in the Caribbean and around the world, author Donna Seim weaves the story of a young girl, a wild horse, and how they touch each other’s lives. Susan Spellman’s masterful illustrations capture the essence of a young girl’s emotions of the heart. Her colorful watercolor paintings sweep the readers away to the island world of Satchi and Little Star.
A portion of the proceeds of the book will be donated to the TCSP — Grand Turk Chapter of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
