KIRKUS REVIEW

A first rate house and boy story, definitely off the beaten track. Alec at fourteen, ships alone from India to America; the horse, Black, a wild Arab stallion, is put on board at a small Arab port, and no one but Alec can handle him. Shipwreck -- the horse saves Alec's life -- desperate days on an arid island, then rescue and Alec and the horse, now his, are taken to America. What happens when an ex-jockey undertakes to -- and how he wins his ribbon makes grand reading.
