Johnston, Dorothy Grunbock

About the author

Dorothy Grunbock Johnston (1915–79) was born in Seattle, and educated at the University of Washington, Moody Bible Institute and the Prairie Bible Institute. Most of her writing was done for the Christian press. Whether Pounding Hooves is amongst these I do not know. It has a ranch background: she and her family (there were five children) spent their weekends on a ranch, and she credited these experiences with inspiring much of her work.
