Short sections told from the point of view of a wild mare are set among chapters about Maya. Maya has been raised for most of her 11 years by her father's mother, who is rich, demanding, and negative about Maya's mother. When her grandmother dies she is reluctantly sent to her mother's relatives She learns to trust those around her and her young memories of her mother come alive in this new setting. Disaster strikes as she is attempting to rescue the wild mare whose herd has been captured by federal agents.
Munoz-Ryan writes with emotional fidelity, vibrant description, and dramatic action. Many facts about horses and horsemanship are interwoven in the story, and a glossary at the end is sure to please every horse-crazy youth. ( )

Paint the Wind was very good and filled with action. It also kept you interested. I couldn't seem to put it down. Suspensful is a good word for it. It made me feel like I was a character in the book; it seemed like I was there. On top of that, it's memorable. Rating - 5 stars due to excellent writing ( )

Eleven year old Maya lives with her grandmother because her parents died when she was young. Her grandmother is strict and she blames Maya's mother for the death of Maya's dad. Then her grandmother dies of a stroke and Maya goes to live with her maternal grandparents. Maya develops a special bond with a horse named Armetisia. Maya's mother had a special bond with Armetisia too.

I liked that Maya and Armetisia had a bond because I like love animals. I did not like that Maya's paternal grandmother was so strict and hated and blamed Maya's mother for her father's death.

A horse story of the best kind. Beautifully told with lots of knowledge about horses. Descriptions of the west are realistic. This is also the horses's story as well as 11 year old Maya. Characters well done. ( )

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk. He trots the air. The earth sings when he touches it. The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes...He is pure air and fire...the prince of palfreys. His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch, and his countenance enforces homage. --William Shakespeare, "Henry V"
Dum vivimus vivamus. (Let us live while we live). --Latin Proverb

a horse's greatest fear is different from a human's. Our innate fear is of falling. But a horse's is of not being able to get up and flee from danger or a predator. (p.152-3)
Your parents died. You never have to get over it, but you do have to get on with it. (p.165)
When the horses run against the wind with their manes and tails flying, I think they look like fleeting brushstrokes of color. (p.182)
it was as if the ground fell away and she was no longer earthbound but galloping between emblazoned stars...She was the horse and the stars and the wind. (p.312)
