Last of the Wild Horses Book Review

Sorry that there’s no picture available.  Last of the Wild Horses is a great read for any horse lover.  It sketches the wild horse and goes from the Sable Island ponies to the wild mustang of North America.  With full color photos and informative interesting text, this book will be a great addition to your library.

Yep!  Two more Horse Diaries and the last one on the way.  I’ll give you a short summary of each one.

Golden Sun is about a snowflake Appalousa horse.  He lives with the Nez Perce Indians, and his owner is a boy named Little Turtle.  He finds a friend in Dancing Feather, a skittish, but beautiful filly.  After a riding accident, Dancing Feather’s owner becomes sick.  Will Golden Sun and Little Turtle be able to save their friend?  Read this book by the illustrator’s daughter, Whitney Sanderson to find out.

Risky Chance is about a sleek and fast Thoroughbred.  He wins many races, but injures his leg racing against Seabiscuit at the Santa Anita Handicap.  Even though his leg seems to heal, it never really does, and he is forced to run in claim races, going from one owner to the other.  But is there hope at the end of this dark tunnel?  This is one of the best Horse Diaries, so be sure to read it!

Horse Diaries 3 Koda

I really enjoyed reading this book, although my favourite one is still Yatimah.  The story is about a Quarter Horse colt who is growing up in a herd.  He has many new experiences as he learns to deal with cougars, porcupines, snakes and other such things.  When a girl name Jasmine and her father decide to take Koda and his mother, Rosie out west on the Oregon trail, Koda is excited by the thought of this adventure.  But traveling on such hot dusty trails is not always enjoyable and can sometimes be dangerous.  When Jasmine goes missing, will Koda be able to find her in time?  Read book three in the Horse Diaries Series to find out.

I went to Chapters…Again!

I liked those two Horse Diaries, Yatimah and Bell’s Star, that I decided to go back to Chapters and get another one.  I got number three in the series (Yatimah was number six and Bell’s Star was number two), Koda.  It’s about an American Quarter Horse who goes to Oregon.  I’m reading it right now, but I’ll put up a book review A.S.A.P.

Look out for…the Horse Diaries!

I got a $10 gift card to Chapters today, so I went to Chapters, naturally! 🙂  I got two books in a wonderful series called Horse Diaries.  They’re basically stories of different breeds told by the horses point of view, first person.  I haven’t had time to read them yet, but watch out for a post about them coming up!

Horse Diaries #6: Yatimah
