Jady lives on a peach farm in Niagara, Canada. He dreams of having a horse of his own, and becomes friends with an American boy who invites him to his Vermont home. The Vermont home turns out to be a horse farm which raises Morgans. Jady rides a horse called Firebird while he’s there, and when he’s given the horse, renames him The General, an appropriately Canadian name; but whatever he’s called, he’s a fine horse to have adventures on.
Lyn Cook is a Canadian author who has written numerous children’s books. One, Jady and the General, has some horse content. She has worked as a drama teacher, scriptwriter, narrator, and a director for the CBC. She was the first children's librarian in Sudbury.
