Publisher's Summary

Bobby Lassiter has some important secrets - but it’s not as if anyone’s paying attention. It’s the middle of the Depression, and while Bobby’s mother and older sister knit all day to make money, Bobby explores the California desert around their home. That’s how Bobby finds Boots. He’s under their one half-dead tree, half dead himself. Right away he’s a secret, too - a secret to be fed and clothed and taken care of, and even more of a secret because of what he can do. Sometimes Boots is a man. Sometimes he’s (really, truly) a horse. He and Bobby both know something about magic - and those who listen to this book will, too.

“A wonderful story about a man who is a horse, and a boy who is a girl - about fake magic and real love - about deaths that are part of living and the pain that pays for joy. I love it.” (Ursula K. Le Guin)
