Nobody could capture the phantom. She was the wildest mare on Assateague Island. They said she was like the wind, that the white "map" on her shoulders was her mark of freedom. Paul and Maureen Beebe had their hearts set on owning her. They were itching to buy and tame her, and worked hard to earn the money she would cost. But the roundup men had tried to capture her and for two years she had escaped them... Pony Penning Day holds a surprise for everyone, for Paul not only brings in the Phantom, but her newborn colt as well. Can Paul and Maureen possibly earn enough to buy them both?

"This story is set in the spectacular landscape of the barrier islands off the coast of Maryland. Edward Herrmann's expressive narration takes the listener through elaborate details of rural island life as well as the lives of the wild ponies of the area. Maureen and Paul Beebe, who live with their grandparents, dream of owning the wildest mare of all, "The Phantom," and they set out to earn enough money to buy her in the annual "pony penning" auction. One can easily differentiate the many island elders, always ready with advice, from the eager children who work hard to make their dreams come true. This classic is well served by the skilled Herrmann, who combines earnestness with a sense of humor. R.H.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
