Title horse gets maybe 3 pages of text through the whole book, whi This book, although it is called " Spirit Horse ", is not a horse. It' about a man, a young blackfoot kid called Running Crane, who's a little Mary Sue. Can' t go riding, is attacked by another young man in the trunk, but then he finally shows that he is the most courageous and intelligent and intrepid and essentially a horse master.
Probably the title horse gets 3 pages of text through the whole book, for which I didn't sign up in person. Besides, the villain who is unfortunately called "Weasel Rider" is really one-dimensional and full of hatred. "All in all, this book was... okay? Seems just too brief for all the action it's trying to get into, and the history that's meant to be inspirational and spiritually, and so it just felt... squeezed.
As he is selected to take part in a crackdown to get more horse for the strain, Running Crane is proud to walk, but careful.
Crane is harassed by another member of the group and is scared to chase the bison (his dad was murdered chasing buffalo). He doesn't know if he can proof himself. As he is disconnected from the group during the attack, he trips over the "ghost horse" that his group hoped to catch.
Totally knows and taming steadily, his trunk is persuaded that this horse is something particular. Once he survives and can domesticate the horse, he asks himself if he can at last show himself. Interesting tale that would address the reader who likes tales about horse. Immediately I felt attracted to this book because it included a horse of which I was a big admirer as a young person.
Admittedly, this was not my favorite, and as it turned out, it was hard for me to get interested in the book first. About half the book lasted until I found the interest to end it. This book had been on my shelves for a while and I had never even looked at it, so I eventually chose to do so.
An uncomplicated adventurous tale about a group of Blackfoot horse robbers in the 1770s. No surprises or special excitement here, but useful for historians or horse lovers. And I was amazed at how much I liked that book. This was a great experience, and there were all these wonderful calm periods when only the youngster and his horse learned to live together.
It was one of my favourites when I was younger, and after another reading I still really liked Spirit Horse.
