Review of J.M.Anton's book
Title: Backyard Horse Tales 2 Frosty and the Night Stalker
ASIN: B009QOFKGA
Kindle edition, Illustrated by Sandy Shipley, copyright 2012
This book is suitable for teenagers and adults alike. It starts with the thoughts of a young Appaloosa horse as he is anesthetized for his gelding in the 1960s. During his unconscious period he sees a ghostlike figure of a dark horse with a rider who is unrecognizable. The story continues when the young horse meets his first human owner, Marcie, and a relationship starts. Then the book, and the horse, now named Frosty, move to the Hi-Lo Farms where Frosty spends the next 3 years in training, and at horse shows. Frosty asks the other geldings if they also had dreams while they were down for their operations. It seems that Frosty was the only one. Soon, the owner of Hi-Lo Farms tells Marcie one day that he thinks Frosty has an old soul. The dream keeps bothering Frosty until he begins to think deeper about the whole affair.
This takes the reader to 1869 when a new Appaloosa is born into the heard owned by the Nez Perce Native American tribe. He becomes Nightstalker, the horse of one of the braves, Standing Bear, and the story of the Native Americans unfolds.
The Author reveals the sorrow of these people as the white Europeans tried to perform genocide on the entire race. Throughout the book the reader is led back and forth from the 1960s to the 1870s, and the story becomes more entrancing with every page.
This book starts as an interesting tale, and moves to a very competent historical review of the late 19th century in our country. Little known facts from history, and from modern geography are combined to make this book quite compelling.

Backyard Horse Tales 2

Frosty and the Night stalker

By Jackie Anton

Frosty is a two year old Appaloosa colt that is given a tranquilizer by the vet which will change him from a stallion into a gelding. When he awakens, he's no longer in his Ohio boarding stable, but on a hill overlooking a herd of horses he doesn't know. He thinks he's in "horse heaven" but as the drugs leave his body the strange vision fades -- for now.

Author Anton tells Frosty's story through flashbacks, beginning with the day he meets Marcie when he's just a yearling. There is an instant bonding between the Colt and the 22-year-old young woman who buys him. He moves to Hi-Lo Farms where Marcie begins his training to show him at Appaloosa and other show horse events. The other horses of all types and people find "Frosty Britches'" strange Appaloosa markings fascinating -- especially the white sprinkles across his dark spotted romp.

Frosty still gets images of another time period, which frightens him. This culminates into his drifting back in time to 1869, to an Indian camp; yet here he sees glimpses of his own time, making him feel caught between two different worlds.

Frosty's life as an Indian horse is rife with adventure and detailed history of the Native Americans who inhabit the land now called America. Frosty's bravery in saving a young four-year-old Indian boy from drowning brings him much acclaim--and a new name. His past life with the Indians and their horses, along with his present life, meld together to make him an even finer example of a brave passionate animal caught between two worlds: and learning from them both.

This book will fascinate, educate and delight pre-teen, YA, and readers of all age groups.

Jackie Anton has a series on Backyard Horse Tales. Frosty and the Nightstalker takes the reader on a journey through mostly horses' viewpoints - from 1960's and 70's and also the late 1800's in western America. The switching back and forth and the horse's thoughts are written very well and add flavor to the story. The illustrations are lovely.

Fosty and Nightstalker are both Appaloosa horses. Frosty, owned by a young woman, is from the 20th century and Nightstalker, an Indian pony, from the 19th century. Both horses are connected, with the Indian pony possibly being Frosty's past life.

This story is educational on two fronts: the history of Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce tribe and their wonderful Appaloosa horses, and contemporary equine care and events such as riding in parade.

Backyard Horse Tales 2
Frosty and the Nightstalker
Genre: YA
Authored by Jackie Anton
Illustrated by Sandy Shipley

This is a marveling tale for children; horse lovers; and adults alike. Its story is told through the tone of a horse (Frosty); about animals and humans. Wow! How interesting? It kicks off in the late 1960s; Ohio; and takes its reader into the farmland (Hi-Lo Farms). But not only there will readers travel many a journey; they shall find themselves weaving back and forth from century-to-century; alongside varies land fields. The author (Jackie Anton) has done a superb job with giving precise, descriptive visualization of its many characters and scenery.
As we know horses don't generally vocalize via talk; but uses plenty of extensive equine expressions (body language/movements) to get their message across ─ to another. Strangely though inside this fairy tale, it may appear its reader can actually see clearly and distinctively every single detail - as Frosty relays its story. Through the unique fashion of presentation, the words appear to jump off the page and place its reader in the moment; bringing the whole picture to real- life.
With this structure of presentation (the author uses), it only exemplifies her fine quality of writing style. Using the aid of its illustrator (Sandy Shipley), there is array of adoring pictures that sparks an added touch to this grand ole'tale. It is so fantastically written and illustrated that this book should easily find a place in the public school system; not limited to the library but classrooms as well. To say the least, this storybook is well-equipped with information that's full of education, entertainment and excitement. This one particular book will make anyone's' list of gift-giving. To the author and illustrator, I give `em both a salute - Kudos!
