A raging storm slashes across Assateague and Chincoteague islands. Water is everywhere! The wild ponies and the people must battle for their lives. In the midst of the storm, Misty—the famous mare of Chincoteague—is about to give birth. Paul and Maureen are frantic with worry as the storm rages on…Will Misty and her colt survive? This is the thrilling story of the hurricane that destroyed the wild herds of Assateague, and how strength and love helped rebuild them.

I think the kids enjoyed this book a bit more than I did, but I enjoyed it well enough. Just like it's predecessor Misty, I'm not the sure the title reflects the actual contents of the book very well; but it was decently written and an enjoyable read. ( )

A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – All ages. Children will enjoy the single storyline; while adults enjoy an easy afternoon read (especially while waiting on a bus, show, doctor, or other appointments).Length? – Reasonable for an afternoon.Characters? – Memorable, several characters, though a bit confusing in the beginning.Setting? – Real world, Recent times (1940′s or 1950′s).Written approximately? – 1963.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Yes! In this book – Stormy is portrayed as Misty’s first baby, yet she was really her third.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No. ( )
