Well, the book I read was a really boring book. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be but oh well. I would recommend this book to children an adult who love horses. It's a great book foe kids just not for me. I just think it was boring because I'm not really in to horses. I think my best friend Serena would love this book even though I don't because she's crazy about horses. Long ago, in 1845 . . . a young girl named Gretchen and her families were on their way west. One day, the horse Gretchen was riding strayed far away from the wagon train. Gretchen was lost and all alone. But then a magnificent white stallion appeared And Gretchen knew she didn't have to be afraid, because the beautiful horse would show her the way back home. So there she is all alone in the woods lost and her horse comes along and saves her. She rides the horse all the way back home. Then she sees her grandma and hurries up and gets over to her. Her grandma tells her a story about when she was little and she got lost but finally found her way back just like her.
I think this book was right for me because it has horses and it has not too hard of words. I really like the author, Elizabeth Shub. I give her a thumbs up! I think this book is good for people who like horses. The book was sad and serious. It seems like a chapter book but it is really not. For fast readers it only takes 5 minites. If you like horses you should read it! Patricia.
