Belle is too old and stiff to pull the ploughs or the wagons anymore. In fact, Molly's horse barely earns her keep by carrying the young girl to piano lessons once a week. When Father wonders if they should get rid of Belle, Molly is delighted at the thought of prancing and galloping on a beautiful new pony.

But one winter day on the way home from piano lessons, Molly and Belle become lost in a sudden blizzard. And Belle, old and stiff as she is, confronts the terrible storm with every ounce of will she possesses. No matter what, Belle will not give up until she brings Molly home.

Set on the prairies during the twenties, Belle's Journey is a moving story of steadfast devotion and a heroic fight for survival.
