The Black Stallion and Satan
By WALTER FARLEY
Would you consider yourself "the luckiest kid in the world" if you owned and rode the fastest and most acclaimed three-year-old colt in the country? If, with him, you won many famous races, including the Kentucky Derby, and shared his triumphant, star-studded Crown?
Or would you, like Alec Ramsay, want something more? Not more fame and public acclaim, but rather that which you had no longer . . . a horse all your own. For a championship colt like Satan does not, could not, belong to any one person. And would you, as Alec did, yearn for the Black, a stallion which belonged heart and body to you alone? Who knew no master but you?
This is the story of what happens when Alec gets his wish. From far-off Arabia comes the Black! Here the giant, untamed stallion meets his burly son for the first time . . . and his reaction to Satan was not what Alec had expected. Here, too, is the answer to the questions thousands of boys and girls have asked Walter Farley in their letters. Which horse is faster? Can the sheer speed possessed by a desert-raised stallion stand up against a colt who has inherited his speed and, in addition, been raised and trained solely to race?
The Black Stallion and Satan gives boys and girls all the action and suspense they have learned to expect in this very popular series. With Alec Ramsay, they will ride Satan and the Black! They will share with him his love for colt and stallion. And they will thrill to the terrifying race which brings these two horses together ... a race to which they and a flaming holocaust are the only spectators!
Here's the Black! Here's Satan! Meeting for the first time! And you won't lay the book down from start to finish.
