War Horse Cover

 

Staff Pick

Horses don't volunteer to go to war. They don't understand politics or borders. They hate the noise and smells and pain. But they don't get to choose. Joey becomes a cavalry horse in WWI when Albert's father sells him to the army. War is not healthy for horses or people.

Publisher Comments:

A powerful tale of war, redemption, and a hero's journey--now available in paperback!

In 1914, Joey, a beautiful bay-red foal with a distinctive cross on his nose, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges toward the enemy, witnessing the horror of the battles in France. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey's courage touches the soldiers around him and he is able to find warmth and hope. But his heart aches for Albert, the farmer's son he left behind. Will he ever see his true master again?
