ANNOTATION: Through Will James' accomplished storytelling and expressive drawings, readers of all ages will enter a magical world in which a precocious young boy ropes chairs and chickens from the back of a homemade rocking horse-an ax-hewn cottonwood log with a horsehair mane and leather ears. The boy's love of horses grows from his make-believe rides around his "territory"-the porch of the ranch house-until, on his fourth birthday, he receives his very own black pony. First published in 1940, this is the only full-color children's book by acclaimed cowboy artist and storyteller Will James. Twenty pen-and-ink illustrations with added watercolor enliven the story.
