(From the publisher):
A boy, particularly a lonely boy, lives in two worlds, one of the limited reality around him, the other a wider world of his imagining and his dreams. This wider world is more exciting and something unexpected is always happening.
In eighty pictures and no words The Silver Pony tells the story of such a boy and what happens to him when, with the help of a winged pony, he is able to escape from the little world of his mid western farm and through a series of adventures come to know the larger realism of the world outside. He learns something about the loneliness of others in their far-off places, and comes to understand what his life has in common with theirs.
