PBOTD 18th August: Jane McIlwaine - Pony Trekking Summer

Pony Trekking Summer isn't a book that appears that often. This author is often confused with the American Jane McIlvaine, but they are different people. Pony Trekking Summer was published in 1965, and is the author's only book. It's set in the Spey Valley in the Highlands of Scotland, and is the story of children who help out at the local trekking centre.





The book’s a good read: it’s not the only story of deer poachers confounded by any means, but it’s a good one, crammed with Highland ponies, The characters are well done and refreshingly normal, and the story is believable.
