In the 1960s, the wild horses of Sable Island in Nova Scotia were to be sold and auctioned off, many of them to be slaughtered for dog meat. School children from across Canada wrote to the Prime Minister pleading with him to have the horses returned and to save them from certain death. This fictional account follows young Lucas Beauregard, son of the retiring superintendent of Sable Island, as he befriends and then plots to save Gem, one of the horses.
