Sporting Proposition

Sporting Proposition

(1973)
A novel by

 
At the center of this human drama stand two people: a thirteen-year-old boy, wild, poor, and very stubborn, and his antagonist, the proud, crippled daughter of a wealthy rancher. They have only one thing in common: a horse, a wild Welsh pony both claim for their own, but only one can possess. With growing fascination, the townspeople watch the fierce struggle between the two erupt -- and spread -- until even the town itself is involved. Neighbors begin to take sides against neighbors; tempers flare; the whole rural community is about to come to a standstill -- until someone thinks to offer a solution, a sort of sporting proposition . . .
