On the night Chancey is born, a "fire star" gallops across the sky. But many years of hardship will pass before the orphaned albino Appaloosa can believe the prophecy his dam foretold—that his "fire star" was a beacon for a horse of profound wisdom and extraordinary potential, one who will eventually change the lives of two children forever. Told through Chancey’s eyes in the classic tradition of great horse stories, here is a tale about bravery, destiny, and hope—and about sharing the magic of a second chance.
