Travis has a reputation for trouble, but he also considers himself a serious writer and even sends a manuscript to a publishing company. Settling into his new surroundings, Travis begins working at his uncle's horse stable, where he sets out to tame a wild horse in hopes of impressing Casey, a beautiful horse trainer. Will Travis's troublesome past come back to haunt him?
Author Bio
S. E. Hinton
Susan Eloise Hinton's first novel was accepted for publication on the same day she graduated from high school. THE OUTSIDERS (1967) is often considered a landmark in young adult literature for its realistic, rather than formulaic, depiction of teenagers. It was the decision of the marketing department of the publishing company to list the author as S. E. Hinton instead of using her full name--they thought the public might have trouble believing that a young woman wrote such a strong novel featuring male protagonists and violence. Using the money she earned from THE OUTSIDERS, Hinton attended the University of Tulsa and earned a degree in education. After writing three more novels, Hinton become involved in translating her books into screenplays. She then returned to writing books in 1988 with TAMING THE STAR RUNNER.
