Book excerpt: A story of love and land, of winning friendships and having the courage to believe in your dreams. 11-year-old Chesca O'Brien, Howth's greatest (and only) Trick Rider plans to ride O'Malley, the farm's wild stallion, and to put on a show no one will forget - especially show jumping champion, Mary Murphy. But then her Ma gets sick, and Da stops talking, which leaves the farmyard gate wide open to all kinds of problems. Inspired by Ireland's most famous Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley, Chesca must take on the might of a developer, rally a town, and fight the fight of her life to save all she holds dear. An Irish tale of talking animals, a magical mountain and galloping sideways.
