We're back with Ben and Dixie at the Tack ranch, but not for a happy occasion: King, the wild thoroughbred is not with his herd of mares and colts! With the help of Gaucho, the Argentinian ranch hand, Ben and Dixie set out to find King, or find out what happened to him.

The author's experience with horses and ranch work is evident in his writing. This book is well written and entertaining, even if you're not a western/horse lover. ( )
