SUMMARY: TV tie in. A ranch/mystery story based on the character of Annette from the 1950s American TV adventure series
Walt Disney Presents Annette. The heroine was played by Disney teen starlet Annette Funicello. Not sure how much horse content as I have not read it. As a bit of extra trivia, Annette Funicello also starred in Disney's The Horsemasters based on the book by Don Stanford

Collector's Info:
The Blue Runner is quite rare. Last of the Wild Stallions, although not common, is reasonably easy to find in the USA. Both these two are very hard to find elsewhere however. The Annette and Janet Lennon books are very easy to find in the USA, but can be elusive elsewhere.
