"There have been many horse stories...but not one of them can compare with this book."
From the Publisher
First Line It seemed like Mother Nature was sure agreeable that day when the little black colt came to the range world and tried to get a footing with his long wobblety legs on the brown prairie sod.
Annotation Set in the early 20th century American west, this is the story of Smoky, a horse born in the wild who is eventually rounded up and trained by Clint, a cowboy who works on the Rocking R Ranch. Although Smoky misses his freedom, he soon forms a strong bond with Clint, a kind man who senses Smoky's innate intelligence. When Smoky is kidnapped by a horse rustler he experiences life with several different owners, some of whom treat him quite cruelly. However, just when Smoky's life looks the bleakest, he once again finds a new home. Illustrated with occasional b&w drawings. Winner of the 1927 Newbery Medal.
