Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry, Wesley Dennis, Wesley (ILT) Dennis

Long ago, a lone little burro roamed the high cliffs of the Grand Canyon and touched the hearts of all
who knew him: a grizzled old miner, a big-game hunter, even President Teddy Roosevelt. Named Brighty by the
prospector who befriended him, he remained a free spirit at heart. But when a ruthless claim-jumper
murdered the prospector, loyal Brighty risked everything to bring the killer to justice.

Brighty's adventures have delighted generations of readers, and he has become the symbol of a joyous way of life.
Some people say that you can even see his spirit roving the canyon on moonlit nights-forever wild, forever free.

As an adult, I fell in love with Brighty. His adventures and friendships ring true even to us older folk. The illustrations bring the landscape and Brighty to life. I did not want the story to end.

This book is a lovely, and for all ages!! At first when I had to read this book for school, I though it was going to be boring and dull,  but  I got sucked in  by the first chapter!!! It is heart warming and shows real freindship!!!  Spoiler: At the end there are some sad and mean thing that happen to Brighty,so if you are senstive blood or murder you might need to  be careful!

I bought this book on impulse, just browsing horse books. It's an amazing book. Henry makes it descriptive, and no character is too strong. I tend to be hard on books, because I am such an avid reader, and only want the very best. The reason I didn't give the book 5 Stars is because the facts were not straight. Brighty was, in fact, a real burro. However, the similarities end there. I would have liked to see more true facts, and less exaggerations. The story of Bright Angel is interesting, and if the author had simply wrote the true story, I believe it would have been more enjoyable.

My eight year old daughter and I picked this book out in anticipation of a spring trip to the Grand Canyon. It was absolutely perfect - she and I took turns reading the pages, and though she was definitely sad in parts and worried in others, it was a really positive experience reading it together. It really brought the Grand Canyon to life prior to our trip and we were actually staying at Bright Angel Lodge so it was just wonderful. I highly recommend this book.

I am not giving the poor rating to the book, but hoping to get the attention of whomever changed the cover picture. The original book depicts a gray burro, not a chestnut horse body with a pseudo-burro head. A terrible injustice has been done to the original book that had the wonderful cover art.  Whomever did this does not know what a burro looks like.  As for the book, it is a classic that every child should read.  Marguerite Henry was a wonderful author and wrote so many great horse stories.
