About the Author

Whitney Sanderson is the daughter of Horse Diaries illustrator Ruth Sanderson. Her family has owned horses since she was a child, and her bookshelves were always filled with horse stories. When she isn’t writing, she volunteers at a horse rescue and therapeutic riding center. She has an Appaloosa named Thor, who posed as the model for Golden Sun.

Ruth Sanderson grew up with a love for horses. She drew them constantly, and her first oil painting, at age fourteen, was a horse portrait.

Ruth has illustrated and retold many fairy tales and likes to feature horses in them whenever possible. Her book about a magical horse, The Golden Mare, the Firebird, and the Magic Ring, won the Texas Bluebonnet Award in 2003. She illustrated the first Black Stallion paperback covers and a number of chapter books about horses, most recently Summer Pony and Winter Pony by Jean Slaughter Doty.

To find out more about her adventures with horses and the research she did to create the illustrations in this book, visit her Web site, www.ruthsanderson.com.

Horse Diaries #5: Golden Sun

I bought this for my granddaughter for Christmas, 2010 and she told me the other day she reads it over and over. She loves Appaloosa horses. Was a very good buy since she enjoys it so much to read over and over.

I had never heard of this series before, but it is great. It is an engaging story line and is perfect for middle elementary school ages.

Another nice horse story in the series. Golden Sun is an appaloosa raised by native americans in the 1800's west. Nice characters, interesting historical lifestyle information and seeing that world from a horse's viewpoint. My 10 year old niece loves these books but boys would enjoy these stories as well. Recommended.

[Review written by 12 year old daughter] Golden Sun is a lovable horse, and this is a lovable book. It has a good story line and understandable characters. This book takes me to a different world consisting on Apaloosas and Indians--a very good book.

My daughter loves this series of books! She is crazy about horses and particularly likes the fact that these books are told from the horse's perspective! It is sometimes very difficult getting kids to read - I have found books that utilize animals as characters are very engaging for young readers. My daughter also loves that each book has a different author because she feels it gives the reader more variety with the characters especially since each story is told by a horse. Happy reading!
