The classic story of an aimless teenager, a demanding father,
and aspirited horse — now a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox

A daydreamer and a time waster, young Ken McLaughlin spends his days on his family's Wyoming ranch with his head in the clouds, surrounded by endless blue skies, wide-open spaces, and beautiful horses. To his brusque, practical father, the boy is an enigma and a disappointment. Then one day, Ken's life is filled with new purpose when he finds Flicka, a magnificent filly as wild as she is fast. Though the strong bond between boy and horse only fuels his father's disdain, Ken's growing love for his friend Flicka is changing him — leading a once-aimless young man down the path to responsible adulthood, forging a new respect and understanding between father and son, and inspiring a fierce loyalty that nearly costs Ken his life.

Synopsis:

A timeless favorite of children and adults alike, this resides in "that borderland where some of the best-loved books in the English tongue hold their immortality."--"New York Herald Tribune." The film version is tentatively scheduled for release in February.

A great and classic book. My Friend Flicka is a wonderful book, about a young man who captures a wild filly, Flicka, who just happened to be the daghter of one of the craziest mares on their ranch. But over time he bonds with and tames Flicka to be his very own horse. A wonderful story that will be read for generations.
