    1 thought on “The Horsecatcher

    1. When I picked up this book, I didn't realize it was written for kids, nor did I know that it was one of the Newbery Honor titles. I just wanted to read another of Mari Sandoz's books. From my rating, it's obvious that I really liked the story, but I bet that most young readers would find it 'slow' or 'boring.' This is so different from today's world and the books that are currently hits with young adults. (Exception: any young adult who likes horses will appreciate the descriptions of their impo [...]

    2. It addresses the question of fulfilling honor. It asks whether honor comes from living up to the expectation of family/tribal tradition. Or does it come from the less glorified route but staying true to the desires within? Can honor be achieved through the eyes of the family with the alternate route?

    3. Getting used to the scalp-thirsty culture of the Cheyenne, Comanche, and Kiowa tribes portrayed took some getting used to, but it served its purpose as the predominant warrior culture that leaves Young Elk on the fringes and struggling to find his path in life. It was really interesting to see all the creative methods these people may have used in secondary families and personal relationships. The challenges and journeys Elk goes on are woven nicely together masterfully to create an immersive se [...]

    4. The idea behind The Horsecatcher really is a good one. There's a lot of promise to this story about a Cheyenne Indian boy whose pacific nature and spirit run contrary to the ideas of his people, and how he stands by what he feels and believes despite the scorn of everyone around him. Many people today from any culture will recognize a bit of themselves in the person of Little Elk, a burgeoning adolescent just trying to find his place in this world when doing so seems to be so unfairly difficult. [...]

    5. I am a Nebraskan and was ashamed that I hadn't read any Mari Sandoz yet and a friend recommended "The Horsecatcher". I feel bad writing this, but I had a very hard time getting through this book! It was very dry with hardly any dialogue. I appreciated the story of Elk and his resistance to killing and also his quest to catch the great white horse, but oh boy, it was a struggle. It is only 192 pages but took me forever to finish. The "exciting" moments in the story did not seem exciting, there wa [...]

    6. BooorrrrinnggggThe book is about a Cheyenne boy, probably an older teenager, who loves horses. He made his life about catching horses (hence the title). He travels up and down through what is now Wyoming, Montana, Alberta, Colorado, New Mexico, and possibly even some of Mexico and Arizona. Along the way he meets many friends and enemies. He wants to impress a cute girl. He gets captured and becomes parts of wars with the Comanches and Kiowas.In short, it could be an interesting and even exciting [...]

    7. This book is an in-depth look into the coming of age of a youth of the Cheyenne people. Details of tribe life, family dynamics, prairie survival, and a love for horses are all contained in this short novel.

    8. Story placed in the romanticized part of 'indian' history. While I did like much of it, overall I didn't really enjoy reading it.

    9. Took a while to get through this one. I couldn't get into it. I read it because it won the Newbery Honor award…I've just never enjoyed books about horses, and this was no exception.
