"Horse lovers of all ages will get something out of this novel and, I suspect, from the entire series...Pros: One of the best things about this novel is following the relationships between Heather and the other young people. There is no inappropriate talk, thoughts, or behavior, and there are realistic consequences for poor choices. Cons: Rimfire has the potential to distract your kids from other schoolwork, or more positively, from the television or computer! --Krystin Corneilson, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
As always, Feld manages to cover safety, good stable management skills, and sound horsemanship and training techniques while smoothly moving the story along. Adding zest to the main storyline is a horse rescue, a trip out West, a showing mishap, and a missing horse. These events guarantee the sustained interest of young readers. Rimfire entertains and instructs while raising awareness of positive social and personal skills in the context of a lively story. --Lynne A. Miller, The Aiken Horse
As with all the in the Morgan Horse series, this one is a pure delight to read. Feld weaves life lessons, horse sense, and a hefty dose of barrel racing information into the exciting plot. The end result is a books that's both highly entertaining and subtly educational...Bottom line: Young horse lovers will get lost in this story of friendship, horse sense, and adventure! --Horseman's Yankee Pedlar
Ellen Feld is an IRA/Children's Choices winner (twice) who began writing about horses more than 20 years ago. At first she wrote for small, regional magazines, but within a few short years, her work began to appear regularly in large, national publications. In 2001, while waiting for her next assignment, Ms. Feld wrote a short story about a Morgan Horse. That tale became the first chapter of Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse. The book went on to win a coveted Children s Choices award, an honor bestowed jointly by the International Reading Association and the Children s Book Council. To date, Ms. Feld has authored nine horse books, including seven in the Morgan Horse series. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two children, ten horses, and assorted other pets.
