Young Willie dreams of riding the wild horses on Sable Island as he works in the coal mines where he is befriended by Gem, the gentle pit pony.

Orca Book Publishers
An award-winning Maritime children's classic back in print, with a new introductory note by Sable Island researcher Zoe Lucas.

If Willie could have his dream, he would go to Sable Island and ride free over the sand dunes on the back of a wild horse. Instead, 11-year-old Willie must work in the coal mines of Cape Breton, hardly ever seeing the light of day. But with the help of Gem, the gentle pit pony, he discovers that things aren't always as bad as they seem. And a surprising event reveals that miracles can happen, even in a coal mine.

1900s CE. This Canadian classic tells the story of Willie, Gem the pit pony, and the bond of love that endures forever in the dark world of “The Deeps”.
