Note: 
Historical fiction about an agricultural colony of Jewish immigrants, struggling to eke out a living in Colorado in the late 1800's. Based on the Cotopaxi Jewish Colony that lasted only a few years, this portrays the hardships that the colonists faced while trying to maintain a Jewish way of life. It is narrated by a girl named Emma, whose love for a horse named Mazel gives her something to cherish when everything seems to go wrong. Not a cheerful story but it has the ring of authenticity and readers will empathize with the characters.
