Summary From Goodreads: In the second book of the Quincy the Horse series, Quincy and his friend, Beau, leave the comforts of home and go on a big trip across the US on a huge horse van. Beau is in his element as Quincy's tour guide. This is the story of Quincy's journey of self-discovery. He has his doubts about the trip until Beau explains that they are going West where there are "Trails as far as a horse can see." Quincy is soon soaking up the sights and to his amazement, he learns that "Horses are everywhere." On the way he sees all the jobs horses can do and dreams about his own possibilities. By the time they reach the desert, he has learned something about himself. He is an American Quarterhorse, the breed that can do anything. Full of energy and imagination, the beautifully illustrated book includes a map of the US with nine highlighted states. Team Matthews and Black have provided a perfect sequel.
Review: Horse enthusiasts and young readers alike will love Quincy Moves to the Desert as it follows the trek of Quincy and Beau to a new home. With beautiful illustrations and scenic vistas this book is not only visually welcoming but also educational. Your young reader will learn about different breeds and function of America's horses as well as the sites and scenes of traveling West. Each illustration is adapted from a full color oil painting.
Quincy Moves to the Desert is a great way to teach your young one about the American West and the exciting adventure of two horses making their way across country in a horse van. We enjoyed it at our home.
