Synopsis

Misty of Chincoteague is a 1947 book by American author Marguerite Henry, based on the true story of a Chincoteague Pony named Misty. Set on the coastal island of Chincoteague, Virginia, the book tells the story of the Beebe family and their efforts to raise a filly born to a wild horse. The book won the Newbery Honor. The horse on which the book was based was foaled in 1946 on Assateague Island, sired by Pied Piper, out of a dam called Phantom.
