Overview

Alcatraz is the story of a horse. Not a gentle, trustworthy horse like Black Beauty, but a ferocious, man-killing creature of the prairie. His reluctance to be tamed is more under-. standable than the yearnings of the cowboys to tame him ; even the inducement that Marianne Jordan, the wealthy rancheress, " goes with " the horse scarcely explains their zeal. The narrative is vigorous and exciting, however, and if real horses have a tithe of the intelligence credited to Alcatraz a good film might be made of the book.
An American Western Classic! The west wind came over the Eagles, gathered purity from the evergreen slopes of the mountains, blew across the foothills and league wide fields, and came at length to the stallion with a touch of coolness and enchanting scents of far-off things. Just as his head went up, just as the breeze lifted mane and tail, Marianne Jordan halted her pony and drew in her breath with pleasure.

I went to Alcatraz myself. It was so cool. We had to take a boat there because it is surrounded by water. It is located in San Fransisco. It was amazing. So this book is perfect. It is a really nice book. :)
