Golden is a 75,000 word, 23 chapter young adult novel, set in contemporary times, about the life of a wild horse in western Wyoming, beginning with his birth on the red desert north of the town of Rock Springs. Aside from it being marketed as a novel, I believe the book could easily be adapted to the screen. There is plenty of action as the horse grows up amongst his wild herd, is captured, abused, escapes and has various encounters with cowboys, a young girl, her veterinarian father, park rangers in yellowstone, grizzlies, bison, moose, wolves and waterfalls. there is as well a life and death run through a raging forest fire and a rescue of the horse by helicopter using a sling and involving a flight over Yellowstone Park. The locations and all of the geography, biology and natural history are accurate. Only the story is fiction.
