To Ride the Sea of Grass
Herds of Thunder, Manes of Gold: A Collection of Horse Stories and Poems.
Sashi was a Scythian girl and therefore, despite her yearning to do so, could not ride a horse like the boys. When the Sarmatian tribe joined forces with the Scythians against the Persians, Sashi found that Samaritan girls rode just like the boys. Through a friendship formed with a Sarmatian princess and a selfless act of courage, Sashi gained her greatest wish, to ride the sea of grass ... on her very own horse.
