5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!! 28 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This book is very boring in the begining, but beleive me, it is worth reading to the end. It's about a boy who dreams of owning one of Sam Flecher's ponys, but that dream is quickly demolished because his father is accidently killed by a man named Frank Chase. Now, his widdowed mother had to try to rais the farm and family by herself, but finds it too hard and turns to her husband's accidenlal killer. After a few months of living with his new step father, who isn't that bad of a guy, Frank finds out about Chris's dream of owning the pony and gets it for him. Altho the horse is wild, Chris still trys to tame and break Lucifer , the pony, in and succeeds. Christmas falls and Chris is sent to get a present from town for his sister when on the way back gets lost and it is up to Lucifer to get them home. After they get home, Lucifer becomes very ill. Chris, Frank, and Mable (Chris's mom) stay up all night trying to make Lucifer better.Finally, after hard work and some home remidys, Lucifer is all better! Now, instead of being two familys who live together, they are like a family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Horse Story! 23 May 2000

I think that this book was a wonderful story, very good put together, about a boy who's dream pony becomes his and a broken family who slowly begins to grow as one. I love how Walt Morey makes having the pony, just a fantasy, but a dream comes true and it made me smile when the boy finally gets to grasp his dream upon all the hard times he was facing. Together, Chris and his pony, Lucifer, help out the family. Once you get within it's pages, you can't put it down. Another great horse story by Walt Morey!

I read some of it... not my style. However my daughter had to read it for a school project and she liked it. Even talked about it when she finished it.

I have been reading Walt Morey books to my boys for years and now they have children of their own and read them to their own kids! Every book has as its hero, a 12-14 year old boy, who learns manly character qualities through the circumstances of his life. It's not always an easy life, but it's inspiring and such good reading for 8-14 year old boys! Excellent! My girls loved them too, by the way!
