"This fast-read is informative fiction that doesn't read like a history book. Vivid description will have the story racing through your mind."
"The choice detail of animal, landscape, and weather, combine with a galloping story and wonderful bonus of an epilogue to make for a delightful reading experience."
""Horse of Seven Moons," engaging for its story as well as its subtext, is the first young adult book about the Mescalero Apaches and will be a gem for school libraries."
"Taschek presents the plight of the Apaches fighting to stay free in their home lands, and the anguish of the settlers struggling to protect ranches they have built. . . Both adults and young people will enjoy "Horse of Seven Moons.""
"This is an excellent, well-written novel. Taschek is well informed about the issues, the physical setting, and the lives of both the settlers and the Indians. She treats the two groups in a balanced way, helping readers see the situation through the eyes of one group then another."
"Historically and geographically accurate, this story is told from the points of view of two realistic, likeable main characters. . Young readers who enjoy fiction about horses, pioneer days, or survival against nature will enjoy this engaging story, which could be useful as supplemental reading in history class."
