About the author
Joan Bowden (Joan Chase Bowden, b.1925) was born in London, and lived in the United States from 1960. She was a prolific author, with over sixty books to her name. Under the name Kathryn Kenny, she was responsible (as were several others) for titles in the long running Trixie Belden series. A versatile writer, Bowden wrote a conservation series looking at what the world would be like without some of its larger mammals: tigers, elephants and rhinos. At least one of her books, A New Home for Snow Ball (1974), involves horses.
