I have read most of the books that Farley has written and have enjoyed every single one of them. I love horses and loved reading books about them as a child, so as you can imagine, I read just about every single one of them that I could get my hands on, and this one was definately at the top of my list of favorites. I agree with the other reviewer that the movie is definately lacking... The book however is fantastic. A great tale that keeps you interested and I think really describes the bond that humans and horses can share and have shared throughout history. Farley really does make you picture The Black running by the shore, and you almost feel as if you can feel his mane between your fingers as Alec does in the book when he rides him. I've read it several times and enjoyed it everytime.

Great book. Read this with my husband and six yr old son. Both enjoyed it. Very exciting story that moves quickly. The movie by the same name, made with Mickey Rooney was sadly disappointing. Changed much of the story line. Would not recommend the movie.
