Hetty Burlingame Beatty
illustrated by Joshua Tolford

Blitz was no ordinary horse. He had within him a quality of greatness which gave him the power to give his best — and more — whenever it was needed.

Carefully trained and well cared for, he soon became the most talked about fire horse in Drumlin — fast and sure and first at almost every fire.

Then a fearful accident injured both Blitz and his driver and the great fire horse days were over. Blitz was sold to a cruel master, and needed all of his courage and strength to live through the next few years.

The story of how he is saved by the love and care of a boy, and of how he, in turn, is able to save a child's life makes a dramatic and moving book in the old tradition. There are happy times and sad times, and a warmth in the telling that will satisfy anyone who loves a good horse story.
