A Pit Pony Named Bobbit cover

In the 1950s life seemed pretty bleak for a young man working in the West Virginia coal mines and for an active carefree teenage girl who suddenly contracted infantile paralysis. A little pit pony named Bobbit is the catalyst bringing the two young people a chance to lead new lives filled with promise, despite heavy odds they must both overcome. Prepare yourself for the cruelty and hopelessness for both man and beast accompanying work in coal mines. Brace yourself to meet a vibrant active young woman who suddenly becomes a paraplegic. Find out how a small pony from the mines can help two struggling young people regain the balance that must exist for them to carry on.
