    More than just a horse book.Children have a chance to learn some history and about life in a small, semi isolated community, and to see what children can accomplish with hard work and patience I love the theme of freedom independence I love the dialect and descriptions that bring the setting alive I love that it s based on reality.And I love the tidbits that are sprinkled
