My daughter thought it was ok. she had a hard time following who was talking and about who was being talked about. She is 11 years old.

I have always considered this book to be more of a part of American history, simply due to the fact that the Morgan horse is the first recognized breeds of equine that were developed in the United States.

This was one of my favorite books as a child. I was delighted to find that it is available in hardback. I'm happy to add it to my library for future generations to enjoy, too.

This is the story of the powerful horse named Figure who was given to Justin Morgan in payment of a debt. Figure went through many owners. He was a very powerful horse and could pull many times what other horses his size could pull. He became known as Justin Morgan's horse. It is an interesting tale of life a century ago. I liked the voice. She did a good job of reading so you could tell change of character. Good car book.

The book is not in color as shown and it smells old.
I gave this book four stars because the bok was a really great book, but you shouldn't expect this firework ending. I would expect the author to go on, but I didn't write this book. If you like horses, this is (obviously) the book for you.
