MacLeod, Ellen Jane

About the author

Ellen Jane MacLeod wrote several Christian children’s stories; from the descriptions of the many that are available secondhand, it appears that her publishers did a brisk trade in providing them for Sunday School prizes. At least one has some horse content; it’s quite possible others do (I particularly suspect Alaska Star).

Adventures on the Lazy ‘N’

Pickering & Inglis, London, 1957, 96 pp.

Six friends go to the Lazy ‘N’ Ranch for the school holidays, where they learn to ride (and get bucked off if the cover is accurate) help with a round up and compete in a horse show. And solve a mystery. Phew.
