Nelson, 1961, illus Sheila Rose

‘Tessa is delighted when she hears that her friends Marie and Laurie, with Marie’s part-Indian cousin Eric Many-Ponies, are returning from Canada to take possession of Rannoch, an estate in Scotland recently inherited by Laurie. And more delighted still when they ask her to come with them to help establish a Dude Ranch there.
Ponies are obtained, the guests arrive; under Eric’s wise guidance – and with the help of a wonderful surprise prepared for her by Laurie – Tessa wins back the confidence in riding that she had lost. Everything seems to be going with a swing, for who would have suspected that pony-rustling – the ever-present danger on a real ranch – would ever threaten the Rannoch Dude Ranch?’
