For most people, being swept away in a horse stampede during a raging thunderstorm would be a terrifying disaster. For the young Native American girl in Paul Goble's 1979 Caldecott-winning masterpiece, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, it is a blessing. Although she loves her people, this girl has a much deeper, almost sacred connection to her equine friends. The storm gives her the opportunity to fulfill her dream--to live in a beautiful land among the wild horses she loves.
With brilliant, stylized illustrations and simple text, Paul Goble tells the story of a young woman who follows her heart, and the family that respects and accepts her uniqueness. Considering how difficult it is for some communities to allow friendships to grow between people of different cultures, this village's support for the girl's companions of choice is admirable. Goble's bold paintings reflect this noble open-mindedness. The young horse fanatic of the house will joyfully add this book to his or her collection. Children are passionate people; they will relate.

From School Library Journal
reSchool-Grade 2-Paul Goble's beautifully-told, Caldecott Award-winning book (S&S, 1978) receives a fine treatment in this book and tape set. It is the tale of a Native American girl whose tribe follows the buffalo. She tends the horses, and grows to love them so much that eventually she joins them. Accompanied by Native American music, the story is clearly and lovingly read by Lance White Magpie, and sound effects help bring it to life. One side of the tape includes page-turn signals, while the other does not. Audio quality is excellent. This would make a good listening center for units on Native Americans, art, or horses.

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.
