A stallion with a wonderful physical perfection and speed that matched his savage, ruthless spirit. When the steameer Drake is shipwrecked off the coast of Spain, there are only two suvivors. One is young Alec Ramsay. The other is the Black Stallion who saves Alec's life. Stranded on a desert island, boy and stallion develop a deep and special bond. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
