with Exciting And Knowledgeable Text And Lovely Black-and-white Art Throughout—both By Real Horse Owners—horse Diaries Are The Perfect Fit For All Lovers Of Horses And History!
in This Second Book In The Horse Diaries Series, The Plot Is Narrated By Bell's Star. As Was The Case In black Beauty, Novels That Are Experienced Through The Voice Of A Horse Lead To Different Insights Than Can Be Found Through Human Narration, As The Narrator Provides A First-person Narration For All Human Events Throughout The Work. Set In Vermont In The Mid 1800s, The Book Follows Bell's Star From Birth As Well As The Owner's Human Daughter, Katie, As The Horse And Girl Work And Play On A Sugar Maple Farm. Katie And Bell's Star Have Adventures That Include Helping A Young Female Runaway Slave Named Eliza Escape To Canada, Where Her Mother Is Anxiously Awaiting Eliza's Arrival To Safety. This Novel's Unique Perspective On Slavery And Bravery Make It An Excellent Addition To Any Historical Fiction Collection. The End Of The Book, As In The American Girl Books, Has Factual Sections Regarding Morgan Horses And More About Vermont During The Time Of The Novel. Reviewer: Sara Rofofsky Marcus
