Award-winning author Ellen Feld began writing about horses more   than 20 years ago. At first she wrote for small, regional publications,   but within a few short years, her work began to appear regularly in   large, national magazines. In 2001, while waiting for her next   assignment, Ms. Feld wrote a short story about a Morgan. That tale   became the first chapter of Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse. The   book went on to win a coveted Children s Choices award, an honor   bestowed jointly by the International Reading Association and the   Children s Book Council. To date, Ms. Feld has authored nine horse    books, including seven in the Morgan Horse series. She lives in   Massachusetts with her husband, two children, ten horses, and assorted  other pets. 



The Further Adventures of Blackjack takes the reader to the exciting world of Morgan shows. Heather and Blackjack have had an awesome show season, winning top ribbons at all the New England Morgan shows. This could be the year that they get to go to Oklahoma to compete in the Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show! But travel from New England to Oklahoma is quite expensive, especially with a 1,000 pound animal. In order to pay for the 1500 mile trip, Heather will have to make a very difficult decision, a decision that will involve one of her beloved horses. And there's a lot that can happen on a four-day trip across the United States with 15 frisky horses cramped into a large horse van.
