Praise for Mary On Horseback

“Wells’s realistic yet poetic prose perfectly captures the dichotomy of the majestic beauty of Appalachia and the harsh realities of mountain life. . . . This one’s a gem.”—School Library Journal 

“Wells’s careful attention to the details and hardships of mountain living authenticates these achingly real accounts, as she spells out both the enormity of Breckenridge’s challenge and the triumph of even the smallest victories. McCarty’s finely crafted drawings, based on actual photographs, add to the historical accuracy and elegance of the volume.”—Publishers Weekly 

“Wells has proved herself an outstanding creator of picture books. Here, she shows her versatility as she brings creativity and word mastery into a longer work. This is a fabulous family read aloud.”—Children’s Literature
