The Lovereading4Kids comment
Set amidst the tough Wyoming ranchlands, this coming of age novel is the perfect gift for horse lovers of all ages. When Ken is given a horse of his own, he thinks his dreams have come true. But Flicka is a proud and spirited foal - and everyone says she's no good. Can Ken tame his wild horse and earn her friendship? This classic story is loved on both sides of the Atlantic: it was made into a major motion picture in 1949 and later adapated into a TV series by 20th Century Fox.
The Good Book Guide Review. Dreamy unsuccessful Ken longs for a colt of his own - but his father, a Wyoming rancher, is adamant. So Ken befriends a mare. Flicka. links his life to hers and when he believes she has been shot, his interest in living ebbs. The first of three classic animal stories that pull at the heartstrings.
My Friend Flicka by Mary O'Hara
'You'll train her and she'll train you. I want you to make a good pony out of her. I want her to make a man out of you.'
This is a classic tale of the American plains - of a misunderstood teenager, a demanding father and a very special horse. Ken was entranced to watch Flicka - the speed of her, the power, the wildness - she led the band. Ken loves riding on the ranch in Wyoming. All he wants is a colt of his very own. But Horses are the family's livelihood, and Dad can't afford to waste a valuable animal on a dreamer like Ken. Will Ken ever get to own the horse of his dreams?
