One Man’s Horse

Our rating: ***½

William Rysdyk is a hardworking dutchman. One day, his employer buys an old lame mare that turns out to be the granddaughter of two special horses in both his and William’s life. A year later, the mare gives birth to an over-sized colt. No one thinks the colt will amount to much, but William determines to buy the mare and her colt and prove to the world that Hambletonian is, indeed, an amazing horse.

Like most Marguerite Henry’s, this book is based off a true story. Horse lovers will delight in this tale. After the initial storyline is over, the last part of the book is information the author collected about the descendants of Hambletonian and some basic trotting races history.
