What could be more thrilling than to run with a band of wild mustangs — and to share Little Pinto’s instinct to survive?

Deep in the heart of the canyon, Little Pinto is just three weeks old. Still a bit unsteady on his feet, he must be ready to travel with his family, a band of rare wild mustangs, as they search for water along the desert flats. Led by the colt’s father, Old White Face, the band roams freely, but must always be alert for signs of danger. At his signal, they are ready to scatter to safety, whether a strange stallion threatens or a whining plane swoops overhead. But can Little Pinto keep up?
