The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses
"There was a girl in the village who loved horses... She led the horses to drink at the river. She spoke softly and they followed. People noticed that she understood horses in a special way."
And so begins the story of a young Native American girl devoted to the care of her tribe's horses. With simple text and brilliant illustrations. Paul Goble tells how she eventually becomes one of them to forever run free.

I got this book for my children being about native Americans and also it had won a literature award. This story turns very strange and creppy, the way a male horse "loves" this girl and then the girl likes being with horses more than her own people? That's a bizarre relationship she has with the stallion and sure enough she ends up becoming a mare herself and getting with the stallion. I don't thing that story is appropriate for young minds.
