The Winter Horses

Reviewed by:

In the dead of winter in 1941, Jewish orphan Kalinka ends up alone on the bleak Ukranian steppe, trying to escape the Nazis and survive. She befriends two remarkable Przewalski horses who may be the last of their kind, descendants of an ancient breed documented in cave drawings from seventeen centuries ago. With the help of an old man, his loyal dog, and the cunning and wise horses, this brave heroine takes us on an adventurous ride through the horrors of World War II, on a journey of love and survival.
