    Birgit Stutz is a journalist, horse trainer, and riding instructor. She lives on a ranch in the Canadian Rockies.
    Lawrence Scanlan, author of The Horse God Built: The Untold Story of Secretariat, the WorldÂ’s Greatest Racehorse, lives in Kingston, Ontario.
    In December 2008, snowmobilers spot two abandoned horses high in the Canadian Rockies. Starving and frostbitten, the horses have trampled the ten-foot-deep snow into a narrow white prison. Those who reach them bring hay but also a gun, in case the horses are too far gone. A glint of life in the horsesÂ’ eyes earns them the hay.

    The harrowing yet inspiring story of their near impossible rescue--involving the volunteer efforts of an entire village, first the excavation of a trench six feet deep and over 3280 feet long, and then a nearly 20 mile descent at negative 40 degrees--is sure to be read in one breathless sitting.

    • This was a great read.

      This was a great story if you are an animal lover and especially a horse lover. An easy read it was hard to put down. I am a slow reader but I finished it in two or three days. Which is unusual for me. Even though I knew how it kind of came out, I wanted to get to the end and make sure. Glad to hear stories about people who are willing to come together to save animals lives after being neglected by their owners. Glad they found good homes.
