The Young Black Stallion

Our rating: **

The story of the Black before meeting Alec. Abu Já Kub ben Ishak breeds the fastest and strongest Arabian stallions. One black colt stands out from the others as being the largest and wildest. Soon, though, the Black is stolen by a Bedouin scout, who is working for Mansoor the Cat. What will become of the Black?

The last Black Stallion book by Walter Farley. It’s a moderately quick read, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the others. It is interesting to gain a little background history about Abu Ishak, but, overall, it’s not a must-read of the Black Stallion series.
