Description

I am Buffalo Bill's horse. This story is a big contrast to Mark Twain's A Dog's Tale.

I am Buffalo Bill's horse  . A Horse's Tale is not always narrated from the horse's point of view and I would have preferred this short story more if it had been narrated by Soldier Boy (the main horse character). I thought the last chapter was really the storey Twain wanted to tell and the last chapter felt disunited from the rest if the story.

Mark Twain A Horse's Tale. Free Public Domain Books from the. Classic Literature Library. I am Buffalo Bill's horse. I have spent my life under his saddle - with him in it, too, and he is good for two hundred pounds, without his clothes; and there is no telling how much he does weigh when he is out on the war-path and has his batteries belted on. He is over six feet, is young, hasn't an ounce of waste flesh, is straight, graceful, springy in his motions, quick as a cat, and has a handsome face, and black hair dangling down on his shoulders, and is beautiful to look at; and nobody is braver than he is, and nobody is stronger, except myself.

When she had been here four or five weeks she was already erudite in military things, and they made her an officer-a double officer. She rode the drill every day, like any soldier; and she could take the bugle and direct the evolutions herself.

A classic humorous tale as told from the point of view of horse in the wild, wild west. “I am Buffalo Bill’s horse. I have spent my life under his saddle—with him in it, too, and he is good for two hundred pounds, without his clothes; and there is no telling how much he does weigh when he is out on the war-path and has his batteries belted on. I am his favorite horse, out of dozens. Big as he is, I have carried him eighty-one miles between nightfall and sunrise on the scout; and I am good for fifty, day in and day out, and all the time. I am not large, but I am built on a business basis. I have carried him thousands and thousands of miles on scout duty for the army, and there’s not a gorge, nor a pass, nor a valley, nor a fort, nor a trading post, nor a buffalo-range in the whole sweep of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains that we don’t know as well as we know the bugle-calls.”

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I will admit that the end is not for the faint of heart! But true to Mark Twain's style, the book was vivid and creative. I don't particularly like books that humanize animals, but I think Twain did a fine job of telling the story from a horse's point of view.

I liked the parts that were understandable, but the ending was so sad! Why did the Soldier Boy and the Cathy die? And the bull fighting...I hate that sport. It's so morbid, nasty, and horrible for the bull, not to mention the horses. Then they just kill the bull afterward? That's so unfair! How could it be a "beautiful sport" when pretty much everyone dies?

Mark Twain's heart doesn't seem to have been in this disappointing tale. A wonderful writer's sadly inferior little book

Okay, so THIS book was amazing, but the ending, WOW, it really made me mad I love Mark Twain and all his pieces, and so I see this as being a normal write. Very well written. Wish it was longer.

How did I miss this book when I was a younger avid reader? I love the different perspectives and the typical Twainisms: big SAT style words that are cleverly defined. I pictured Shirley Temple the whole way through. Additional bonus...it was FREE!
ok
