Who was Marguerite Henry before she was a famous author?

What was her secret for writing unforgettable books?

Why was Misty (the book and the real-life pony) so special?

Uncover the captivating backstory of Marguerite Henry, author of Misty of Chincoteague and dozens of beloved books about animals in this heartfelt memoir, Marguerite, Misty and Me. Join passionate horse lover Susan Friedland on a cross-country adventure as she delves into the hidden history of Marguerite, the Newbery Medal-winning author and literary legend. From a kayak in the waves off Chincoteague Island and an underground archive in Minnesota, to a dreamlike ride aboard a Chincoteague Pony, Friedland unearths clues while forging deep connections with fellow Misty fans. She even meets some of Marguerite’s friends (and one of her illustrators). Saddle up for an enchanting ride that explores the legacy of Marguerite Henry and celebrates not just Chincoteague Ponies, but horses everywhere, as well as the people who love them.
