An unforgettable, inter-cultural story of reconciliation for children and their families, Mistatim is about the taming of a wild horse and the truest of friendships. Under a prairie sky, a simple wooden fence is all that separates Calvin on his ranch and Speck on her reservation. In many ways they are worlds apart, that is, until a wild horse named Mistatim turns their worlds upside down. Working together to rein in this wild horse, both Calvin and Speck must cross their cultural divide and learn to communicate with each other, Mistatim, and their families.
