The Black Stallion ¸ THE SOLE SURVIVORS of a devastating shipwreck Alec Ramsay and the Black Stallion must learn to rely on each other to survive As a strong bond develops between them. No idea when I first read this but I was very young This is the German edition and I always loved the covers just looked into the English ones and am not convinced so I probably won't re buy them I was never the girly type of girl that was into horses but the fierceness of the Black Stallion the majestic way it was portrayed in the movie as well as the Arabian kept in the stables where I had my lessons and the adventures sucked me in With the generous backing of my grandfather who liked the series as much as I did I got all of the original 13 15 if you count those that Steven Farley Walter Farely's son penned or at least helped with volumes on my shelfIt's definitely time for a re read and perhaps for re watching the old movie too download ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¿ Walter Farley

I know I read this as a kid yet I couldn't remember a thing about it which is odd although I hadn't remembered Misty of Chincoteague very well either Too many years I guess Anyway I'm really happy that I had a chance to reread this as an audio book narrated by Frank Muller who did an excellent jobThis is definitely a kids book perfect for young teens down It's full of adventure yet Alec never forgot to do his homework plus his parents were completely clueless while being fully supportive It's also full of fortuitous coincidence something I normally abhor but that wound up being part of the charm Things just worked out for the best that made for a great storyThis was written in 1941 so it is also nostalgic in many ways The horses were described well although using 'whistling' to describe one of their high cries bothered me throughout I've always called it a scream but things like riding without all the safety gear getting bucked off the exertion of staying on a fast moving horse were very well done The racing was great too Very reminiscent of the match races of the day between Man O' War his get They did keep using a saddle after they heard it break though The only time I've known a saddle with a broken tree to work was on an extremely fat Welsh pony It didn't pinch him due where it broke all his fat We used it because it kept good saddles from getting ruined since he had a penchant for scratching his back occasionally When Fritz decided to roll he was going to roll; to hell with the rider tackSeeing NYC Long Island today some might find it hard to believe the area was rural enough to hold a horse field since Flushing NY is right on the East River in ueens just east of LaGuardia airport While it is now one of the busiest in the world there wasn't much commercial traffic in the 30s the date is never given Alec was planning to take a month to travel back from India via ship so LaGuardia might still have been an amusement park which it was until 1929New York has also spread amazingly fast My great grandfather kept goats chickens in Glen Cove not far east into the 1940s some of his neighbors had horses Mom kept her horse in Centerport further east in the 1950s we used to ride double from our farm in Lake Grove even further east north of Lake Ronkonkoma about midway along Long Island across fields to the post office in the early 1960s By the late 70s the fields were gone completely replaced by houses packed together on uarter acre lots; completely changed in less than 20 years So much growth in so little time mostly due to the way the car changed transportation times I thinkI highly recommend this especially in this format for adults There are some great illustrated editions too If you like this I'd also recommend Old Bones the Wonder Horse That's actually based on a true horse I gave it a 5 star review here
