A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a wild mustang called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. In a land where mountain lions and wranglers pose an ever-present threat, she must vigilantly protect her new foal...until a devastating act separates them from their band.
Like a braided rein, Maya's and Artemisia's lives will ultimately intertwine. Together, they hold the key to each other's survival.
This was the first audio book that would actually keep my 11 y.o. daughter interested.
The story follows a young girl as she works through a myriad of adversity to find out more about her late parents, of who she remembers little. The author is quite knowledgeable in the ways of the equine and her writing imparts a lot of horse learning within the story, going as far as telling some of it through the thoughts of the main horse character.
It is well written, is fairly fast-paced and the reader does a good job with the different characters, without being too "hammy".
This is a great book for a 5 hr. car ride with a young (or old) horse lover!

We were looking for a horse book that featured a girl. Maya is a strong and smart girl, but she still has a lot to learn about life and relationships. She makes some mistakes and she knows it, but she learns to make the best of her situation. Meanwhile the story itself is one that draws you in from the very beginning and keeps you wondering what will happen next. I will be looking for more by this author.
My 3rd grade horse-loving daughter listened to this book first and encouraged me to listen as well.

I loved this book. I couldn't envision how I would enjoy a tale about a horse and its rider. But of course it was a Pam Munoz Ryan book. I have learned that every story she pens is endearing. And this story comes with amazing life lessons. I heartily recommend this to children and adults.
Where does Paint the Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as an adult, but it was great. I reconnected to my girlhood days spent in love with horses, dreaming of horses and reading horse books. A refreshing read over the holidays.
Its a adventure for a young girl and is for all the horse lovers out there
Listen to this one with my horse crazy 10-year-old daughter. Both the narration and the story were excellent. It was delightful to watch my daughter become so absorbed in a story!
This is my Fav. Audio book. I have listed to it over two times and it never gets old. This is coming from an 12 year old, and it is great!!
This story is really interesting and exiting. I hope there is a number 2. That would be awesome. I love this book and I think you will too!
book for female teen who loves horses. it was total fantasy. that's all I have to say about this book. I think it's rediculous that Audible require 20 words or more
