Up shot the sun showering golden beams of light upon the forest. The air grew warmer, but the little band did not cease its rapid pace northward until noon. Then at a word from Ross all halted at a beautiful glade, across which ran a little brook of cold water. The horses were tethered at the edge of the forest, but were allowed to graze on the young grass which was already beginning to appear, while the men lighted a small fire of last year's fallen brushwood, at the center of the glade on the bank of the brook.
A Kingdom In A Horse
First published in 1965 by Newbery Medal?winning author Maia Wojciechowska, this is a true classic about the love and happiness found in owning a horse.
Twelve-year-old David Lee is severely disappointed when his father, Earl, a once famous rodeo clown, quits the circuit and moves David to a small town in Vermont to start a new life. Hurt that his father never gave him a real chance in the rodeo arena and having a difficult time adjusting to ?normal" life, David withdraws and begins to rebel. Hoping to make things right, Earl tries to buy David a horse in a local auction. But when David pretends to have no interest in it, the horse is sold, instead, to a seventy-year-old woman named Sarah Tierney.
Sarah, grief-stricken after the death of her husband, tries to find solace in owning a horse, but she needs the help of both Earl and David to learn how to care for her new mare, Gypsy. Gypsy brings the three unlikely characters together, helping each of them in their own way, and David, especially, finds peace in their friendship. A heartfelt story, this middle grade novel is a must-read for any girl or boy interested in nature and horses.
