About the Book:

Clippity-Clop! Rosebud is off and running.  She’s running after her dream, and lands right where she longs to be – smack dab in the middle of Charleston! Set in the extraordinary city of Charleston, this heartwarming story of a young heroine following her dream includes warmth, adventure, and a very strong sense of place. Join the enthusiastic filly Rosebud as she discovers Charleston, and glimpse a life in this old city as Charlestonians welcome her.

About Sally Smith:

Sally Hughes Smith, a graduate of Duke University with an English and art focus, is a dedicated artist and writer whose love of Charleston blossomed into the book Rosebud Roams Charleston now in its fifth printing.  She has had 53 solo art exhibits, culminating in her fourth museum exhibit at the Dixon Gallery in Memphis last fall. Her works are in public and private collections in over 300 cities at home and abroad. She has two other published  books.  Sally is married to pediatric surgeon, Dr. C.D. Smith, and lives in Charleston where they have reared their four children.
