About the author

Jean Nielsen (b.1922) wrote several children’s books. The one horse book I have been able to track down is this one, The Phantom Palomino. I have not yet been able to find any biographical information on the author. If you know of any, please contact me.

Finding the book
Easy to find in the USA. It was not published in the UK.
