Author Info
Marguerite Henry
Marguerite Henry's books focus on the strong bonds between humans and animals. She published her first story when she was 8, and the check she received for that story helped her to decide to become a full-time author. Henry attended the University of Wisconsin, and she continued to sell articles to magazines and published 16 informational books for children. Her 1945 work, JUSTIN MORGAN HAD A HORSE, was named a Newbery Honor Book, as was her 1947 book MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE. The following year, Henry's KING OF THE WIND won the Newbery Medal.
From the Publisher
First Line A shaggy young burro lay asleep in the gray dust of the canyon trail. Except for the slow heaving of his sides and an occasional flick of an ear, he seemed part of the dust and the ageless limestone that rose in great towering battlements behind him.
Annotation The story of Brighty, a wild burro who helped blaze the trail of the Grand Canyon. When a claim-jumper murders a kindly prospector who befriended Brighty, the burro sets out to bring the killer to justice. B&w illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note Brighty, a shaggy little burro from days gone by, braves the rough terrain of the original trails through the Grand Canyon.
