    1. This is a story about a boy named Chris who lives in a small ranch/farm town with wild horses that roam around. Chris is a young farm boy who lives with his mom in a small barn/farm house. One thing i liked about the main idea was that Chris always thought about the positive and made it into a life lesson. Something i disliked about the story was the way it was told in perspective and how there were too many details that didn't make much sense. I suggest this book to people who like to read smal [...]

    2. This is one of my favorite Walt Morey books, about a boy and a black horse that he falls in love with.It Holds your interest clear to the end. All of my children and grandchildren loved it. Gramma even liked it.(Our copy is a First Edition ISBN 0-525-43455-0 purchased through ) We also have a paperback copy that is falling apart. Which I ordered brand new from Klindt's book store in The Dalles, OR.

    3. I was intrigued by the story's set up, and found the characters likable enough. The "lost in the storm but my horse saves the day" plot point is a little overdone, and I raised my eyebrows at the illness and recovery. I know nothing about historical home remedies though so it may be an accurate portrayal of what would have been done back then.I enjoyed it overall. Nothing fantastic, but it was a good afternoon read.
