Spirit Horse

Scholastic, New York, 1998, 167 pp


A young boy, Running Crane, longs to capture a fine horse of his own, and can’t help dreaming of
owning the legendary stallion known as “the spirit horse”. He is separated from the rest of his group
on a horse raid gone bad, and only he sees the spirit horse alone on the prairie. The boy tries to
succeed in doing what the warriors have failed to do - capture and tame the majestic stallion.
