Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-This rather old-fashioned, action-packed tale will keep readers riveted even if they have seen the movie. Spirit is a larger-than-life, four-legged hero. From the time he is a colt, his brash curiosity and athleticism make him a standout, and eventually he becomes the leader of the Cimarron herd. However, that same curiosity brings about his capture by wranglers, who sell him to cavalrymen determined to tame him. With the help of an American Indian boy, he escapes and finds true love with Little Creek's mare, Rain, but his adventures and difficulties are far from over. This hooved Indiana Jones escapes danger at every turn and finally succeeds in returning to his herd, his life of freedom, and his true love. Scenes of galloping horses, an exploding locomotive, and Rain being shot during a cavalry raid on Little Creek's village fill some of the pages of this yarn. The illustrations have a Disneyesque feel as the two horses flirt with and seem to smile at one another; the colors of the paintings are appealing. The faces of both the four-legged and two-legged characters are expressive and sustain the excitement of this "superhero" story for those who just want an entertaining page-turner.

I bought this book for my 3 year old. I was surprised at the beautiful paintings within this book. You sometimes forget your reading a children's book. This is the story of a mustang, stolen away from his herd and his freedom. With his new friends, a young Lakota brave and his pretty paint mare, he discovers not all humans are bad, never give up, and never let them break you. The new American hero for children and yes, even their parents to love.

Great book and easy for kids to read. No nightmares here! Good story line where the good guys win and the ending will not disappoint the little ones...or the readers. This is a Tale with a meaning behind it and lessons to learn while providing action and a love story suitable for young readers. It Encouraged my kids to inquire about history and initiated a great teaching and learning opportunity for all of us. I Cannot recommend this book enough. It's a favorite in my family--the movie and the soundtrack are even better. The kids loved the movie and the soundtrack is easy listening for us too.
