The blurb:
“This is an exciting story of a little boy and his love for the pony that worked with him in the coalmines of Sherwood Forest. Into the plot, the author has woven a fair play theme, culminating in a grand prize fight between the hero of the story and the envious, spiteful pit pony driver whose hateful acts are the source of many dramatic incidents.”
