This retired library book tells the tale set at a U.S. Army cavalry post on the Dakota plains approximately 1900, when the cavalry still rode horses and most Indians were still following their tribal ways. Into this exciting but very strange kind of life came young Meg, from Boston. She was afraid of horses, and simply terrified of Indians. She liked to read and knit, but this didn’t fit in at all with the ideas of her husky Western cousins, Rick and Phoebe Armstrong. When Captain Armstrong offered to give Meg a pony of her own she chose a half-starved little pinto which she named Papoose because it was little and an Indian. With Papoose Meg gradually learned to take part in the fun of the other children of the post and most importantly, learned to LOVE horses. Hardcover with 145 pages, published by The Junior Literary Guild, New York and Little, Brown and CO, Boston as a second edition in 1950 (The first edition was 1947); illustrated by Mac Schweitzer. I believe this book once had a dust cover that is missing, linen bound, very good condition with the following notes: There are some dark spot on the front inside cover and first 3-4 pages; this is discarded library book so there are library stamps on some of the pages. Binding is great, pages are clean, a really nice, collectible copy for your library.
