I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade

Set in ancient Mongolia, I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade by Diane Lee Wilson follows the story of Oyuna, a young girl who brought bad luck to her family.

How? When she was a baby, a horse crushed her foot. Now that she’s nearly grown, she’s determined to bring good luck to her family – but how can she do that?

Oyuna’s unlikely adventures include a horse that she herself cannot believe she picked, a disguise and a stint as a soldier, and a long, perilous journey over the mountains.

But will it restore her family’s good fortune?

Historical fiction does not normally include the steppes, yurts and horses of Mongolia. I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade gives readers insight into the nomadic life of ancient Mongolia, along with a great adventure and story.
