100 BCE. Before the Silk Road, there was the Horse Road. And on this road ran the finest horses that Asia had ever seen - the Celestial Horses. But where did they come from? 14 year-old Kalli knows. These horses belonged to her, her family, and her community. But in 102 BCE, when armies from China come to take the horses and in particular her beloved Swan, Kalli must save them and herself from danger.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I found myself so entrapped in the story. I don't agree that the alkel teke breed is the prettiest horse in the world, but the book was great. I loved for start to finish.
