Peone pens second part of her trilogy

Staff Writer

Historically in the mid-1800s, white girls did not horse race against Indian boys. But one girl was bound and determined.
“Determined to live apart from her parental grip, Hannah followed her dreams by racing her adopted Indian aunt’s horse against Indian boys who vowed to stop her at any cost.” Hence, it is the backdrop for “Hannah’s Journey,” the latest book authored by Carmen Peone.
The 52-year-old Peone has lived in Northeast Washington, on the Colville Confederated Indian Reservation since 1988.
She has owned and trained her horses for 13 years and competed in local Extreme Challenge Competitions for three years.
With a degree in psychology from Eastern Washington University, the thought of writing never entered her mind, until got married and they moved to the reservation. She came to love the people and their heritage and wanted to create a legacy for her four sons.
