As they stared, the smoke clouds began to glow, ruby and vermilion tongues of flame flickering in their bellies.

In the short time they'd been down in the gully, the fire had staked its claim on the mountain.

Faye Marsh is out show jumping for Lawrence Devries, and twelve-year-old Kirsty's still working for Lucy at the ranch. She doesn't mind, really—she and her pony Lancelot would be nowhere without Lucy. So when Kirsty's asked to help with a cattle roundup, she agrees, even though she's nervous. This kind of riding is completely new to her. Can Lancelot handle it? Can Kirsty?

It's just bad luck that her roundup partner is fourteen-year-old Jesse, who treats her like an idiot. Jesse has had every advantage Kirsty can imagine, including a family ranch with horseback riding every summer. Why does he have such an attitude problem? Doesn't he realize that Lancelot and Kirsty are new at this? Soon she's steaming mad—and Jesse has disappeared.

When she finds him, it's too late: a forest fire is bearing down on them. Their lives in peril, Kirsty and Jesse have to cooperate—and trust the horse sense of the amazing Lancelot—to ride through the fire and out to safety.
