"Kit Hunter - a superb young horsewoman - proved herself as a champion showjumper, and saved Colonel Hamden's Devonshire estate, Moor Grange, on The Wild One - a wonderful crossbred pony, the living proof of the Colonel's bold ideas on breeding. But, if they are to reap the full benefit of his knowledge and costly experiments, and Kit's own skill and daring, fresh horses must be brought quickly from South America to cross with the Devonshire ponies, and thus build up the stock at the Grange. The Colonel's resources are small, and unscrupulous financiers may soon reap where Kit and the Colonel have sown, unless Kit and her friend Mary Trent can get to South America, and trace the original breed of horses. Against baffling intrigue, and heavy odds, Kit and Mary undertake the South American mission alone. In the teeth of great opposition they bring new horses to the coast, in an exciting, danger-fraught, overland drive against time."
