Nancy Thompson, 15, is an orphan. She meets the Carr family, and everything goes well at first. Unfortunately, Nancy’s aunt, with whom she lives, doesn’t approve of her affection for the Carrs, and she doesn’t understand her love of horses and riding either. Besides horses, there is also plenty of the usual holiday sort of adventure: a robbery, a theft, a chase over land and sea and a rescue.
