This classic book about a boy growing up and learning responsibility through his love for a horse is a must read. Not only is this book beautifully written, but the life lessons are ones that everyone can benefit from. While this is considered a children’s book, I could re-read it over and over. This is a book for anyone who loves horses.
The first time that Ken McLaughlin sees Flicka galloping past him on his family’s Wyoming horse ranch, he knows she’s the yearling he’s been longing for. But Flicka comes from a long line of wild horses, and taming her will take more than Ken could ever have imagined. Soon, Ken is faced with an impossible choice: give up on his beautiful horse, or risk his life to fight for her.
