This wider world is more exciting and something unexpected is always happening. In eighty pictures and no words 'The Silver Pony' tells the story of such a boy and what happens to him when, with the help of a winged pony, he is able to escape from the little world of his mid western farm and through a series of adventures come to know the larger realism of the world outside. He learns something about the loneliness of others in their far-off places, and comes to understand what his life has in common with theirs"--Jacket flap
