ABOUT THIS BOOK

THE SOLE SURVIVORS of a devastating shipwreck, Alec Ramsay and the Black Stallion must learn to rely on each other to survive. As a strong bond develops between them, Alec gains the trust of the magnificent beast and eventually the Black allows Alec to ride. Finally, they are rescued, but will Alec and the Black be allowed to stay together?

Available in hardcover for the first time in a decade, this stunning facsimile of the original 1941 edition shows just how timeless this adventure classic is.
