“She Rode a Yellow Stallion” is a reprint of a 1950 historical fiction novel by Warren Reed.

Set in the town of Mitchell, city of Sheboygan and city of Milwaukee, Reed does a great job meshing the reality of the harshness of life in pioneer Sheboygan County with a love story between an unlikely pair.

Warren Reed’s ancestors were early residents of the county and he uses the knowledge from stories passed down to create an immensely readable story.

These and many more great books are available at the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center.

The books are great for holiday gifts.

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center is open Tuesday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
