Staff Pick

My all-time favorite horse series as a child, The Black Stallion is brimming with plucky heros, cantankerous horse trainers, daring deeds, exotic adventure, and fast horses. I highly recommend it for the any horse-crazed ten-year-old.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walter Farley's tales of bravery, instinct, and survival have been captivating readers for almost 65 years. Here, in a handsome gift set, are four of the best, starting with The Black Stallion, where Alec Ramsay saves the Black after a shipwreck. The bond they form cannot be broken. This bond survives their separation in The Black Stallion Returns, when Alec returns the magnificent horse to his original owner in Arabia. Reunited in The Black Stallions Ghost, they survive a terrifying curse. Finally, in The Black Stallion Revolts, they are separated again after a plane crash, and Alec is suspected of murder as the Black runs wild! Each gripping tale culminates in a thrilling race to the finish!

Synopsis:

First published in 1941, Walter Farley's best-selling novel for young readers is the triumphant tale of a boy and a wild horse. From Alec Ramsay and the Black's first meeting on an ill-fated ship to their adventures on a desert island and their eventual rescue, this beloved story will hold the rapt attention of readers new and old.

About the Author

Walter Farley's first book, The Black Stallion, was an instant hit when it appeared in 1941. Mr. Farley went on to write thirty-three other enormously popular books about the Black Stallion and other horses which were published in more than twenty countries. He died in 1989, shortly before the publication of his last novel, The Young Black Stallion, written with his son Steven.

I guess all girls love horses. I know I did and I devoured The Black Stallion series. This is the first in the series, any of which will please a young horse lover. The stories are exciting and each one is unique. If there is young girl you need to buy a gift for, get her this volume and you may not have to ponder, in the future, over what she might like. The series is long and will cover many birthday and holiday gifts.

The Black Stallion by Walter Farley was an amazing book! I loved how well Walter used his adjectives and explained things clearly so the book was easier to read. The book did have a few parts that I didn't like as well. I do a lot of horse-back-riding and I don't think that horses that are wild like the Black should be able to race or even ridden (especially ridden) until they are tamed by a professional. That's the thing I sort of have a big question mark on. If you can answer that, I would be very happy. I don't know if I'm right, but that is what I believe!
