From the Author
Tecolote gave me those gifts, and gave all of us the gift of the story of his early life that is recorded in his book. When he'd done that, Tecolote left this earth. My beloved Teco died of heart failure in early May, 2011, just days before his tenth birthday. It broke my heart. The vets said that what happened had nothing to do with his prematurity.
Teco's death was surrounded by heartache and joy. We received notice that his book had won the 2011 Silver Nautilus in Juvenile Nonfiction (Grades 1 - 6) the day before we found out his heart was failing. During the next few weeks, the book contests announced their awards. I alternated between joy over the awards his book won and despair over his deteriorating condition.
Finally, Tecolote's great heart could stand no more. Teco is gone, but his book remains.
I'd rather have the horse, but at least I can share the book with you.
