If you know a girl who loves horses, I highly recommend this book about a Plains Indian girl who literally leaves her world to live among wild horses. The narrative is compelling to anyone who loves horses, and between the narration and the beautiful graphic-style illustrations, an enchanting horse world is created. Even though the book won the 1978 Caldecott, this book is timeless and should be on every horse lover's shelf. In fact, I received my first copy of it as a birthday gift from a friend when I turned 35! This is one of my go-to gifts for my friends' and relatives' children, and lately, I have been combining this gift with an Appaloosa stuffed horse - a winning combination!

Paul Goble has written a wonderful story about a girl and he love for wild horses. His illustrations are spectacular--the best that I have ever seen in a story book--a vibrant show of horses, birds, and nature. This book won The Caldecott Medal. It is book for all ages to read, reread, and treasure.

The book ends with a song that is from a dream of Black Elk, and Oglala Sioux:

"My horses, prancing they are coming.
My horses, neighing they are coming.
Prancing, they are coming.
All over the universe they come.
They will dance; may you behold them.
A horse nation, they will dance,
May you behold them."

The illustrations in this book are some of my all-time favorites. As a child, this was one of my absolute favorite books. I loved the story but mostly the drawings of the horses, and as an adult I am buying copies to send to friends’ children so that they can hopefully enjoy this book as I did so long ago!

I read this story many times when I was younger. Opening it again is filled with nostalgia. The first thing that caught my attention was the wonderful illustrations. Goble's art is colorful traditional without being overwhelming. The night scenes and the portrayal of the animals, backgrounds and characters are well balanced with a good blend of childish vision, traditional antiquity and realism that is difficult to harmonize.

The next item was the story is wonderful. The sentences are simple, lyrical and reflect an old storyteller's flair making it natural to read aloud and be caught up in the story.

The girl's talent with horses is a good example of how our talents are to be used to help the community and to forge our own path in life. Sometimes our talents mean breaking from some traditional values; not to say traditions are useless, but rather should be respected and used if they enrich a person's talents or modified or discarded if they stunt an individual's growth in both mind and spirit. It is good way to converse with others about how to best use talents to plan for success.

Beautiful illustrations but story took a little bit of a strange and unexpected turn in my opinion. The part about bringing her parents a colt each year as a gift I thought was a little weird but other than that its a nice bedtime read for us. My two year old son loves horses and this book is very beautiful to look at.

Just got this and my 2 year old was intrigued, though it may take her awhile to get more into this book. Meanwhile, I found it incredible. The illustrations are beautiful and inspiring and the story is lovely- a young girl who is obviously unique, soulful and unlike 'everyone else' is taken away and finds herself living among horses and developing a spiritual relationship with a beautiful stallion. Even when she has the opportunity to return home, her parents accept that she is not as happy with them and free her to return to where she longs to be, among the wild horses. A great metaphor for individuals who may be different, who don't always fit, but who do have a place and should embrace the truth of who they are. Really beautiful piece.

Paul Goble has written a very nice story about a girl who loved wild horses and eventually roams with them. His book is beautifully illustrated (as is evident on the cover illustration) and is bewitching. It is based on native American Indian traditional storytelling. My six year old grand-daughter just loved this story and all of the beautifully colored illustrations. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading good stories or loves to read aloud to their children or grandchildren.
Amazing! The story is unique but still carries a classic children's book lesson. The artwork has brilliant depictions of the story that will cause strong emotions within the reader and draws them deeper into the story.

Or at least that's how I feel about this book.

I first read this book when I was a young child. It was one of the first books I could read on my own and I will never forget the feelings it created, it truly gave me a passion for reading.

And I'm not ashamed that 27 years old I still go back and read this book from time to time. Or just to look at the artwork and get inspiration for my own writing.

I just bought this book for my cousin's baby shower gift. I knew it wasn't the normal type of gift for the situation but when I thought back on the things that meant the most to me when I was growing up this book came to mind, and as much as it is a book for older children I thought it would be a great book for her to read to her little girl and hopefully help her to learn to read someday.

If you're looking for a book for young girl I highly recommend this whether she has a passion for horses or not. This book is truly amazing and hopefully, like me, it will inspire her.
