August 2013 Guest Editor, Lauren St John "The ultimate wish fulfillment fantasy, later made into an award-winning film. Alec Ramsay is on a voyage home to New York after spending time with his uncle in India when his ship is wrecked by a storm. In the chaos, horse-mad Alex frees a panic-stricken Arabian stallion. Marooned on a desert island, the pair bond when they have to depend on one another to survive. Their troubles start when they are rescued. Back in America, the Black’s wildness proves difficult to contain. Could racing him be the answer? I’ve read this book more times than I can count and it never loses it’s magic. The film is great too."

Synopsis

The Black Stallion's Courage by Walter Farley

When Hopeful Farm burns down, Alec’s dreams for the future go up in smoke. How can he get the money to rebuild? To make matters worse, a strong young colt named Eclipse has taken the racing world by storm, threatening to replace the Black in the hearts of racing fans. Against all odds, Alec sets out to save the farm and prove that the Black is still the greatest race horse of all time!

Reviews

“Everyone loves a champion. And when the champion is a gallant horse, when his story is told by a champion writer of horse stories, every reader is a winner.”—The New York Times
