Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long ago, a lone little burro roamed the high cliffs of the Grand Canyon and touched the hearts of all who knew him: a grizzled old miner, a big-game hunter, even President Teddy Roosevelt. Named Brighty by the prospector who befriended him, he remained a free spirit at heart. But when a ruthless claim-jumper murdered the prospector, loyal Brighty risked everything to bring the killer to justice. andlt;BRandgt; Brighty's adventures have delighted generations of readers, and he has become the symbol of a joyous way of life. Some people say that you can even see his spirit roving the canyon on moonlit nights-forever wild, forever free.

Synopsis:

This is the true story of a shaggy little burro that blazed the original trails through the Grand Canyon, long before it became a national park. Black-and-white illustrations.

This is an excellent chapter book! The book gives wonderful descriptions of the Grand Canyon. It has rich language with many similies and metaphors. It is also based on facts. I read it every year to my second graders (even though it is written for intermediate students) and then we watch the movie. It is a tradition at my school for all second graders to listen to this story. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

I loved this book as a child, and as an adult I appreciate the accurate depictions of the Grand Canyon. I also loved her other horse-related books. All were beautifully illustrated by Wesley Dennis.
