The Black Stallion (1941)

This is the first book in Walter Farley’s bestselling series about a stallion and his teenaged owner, Alec Ramsay.

Alec had gone to India to visit his uncle. While aboard ship returning home, he watched an untamed, apparently wild black stallion being loaded in the cargo hold.

The ship sinks, stranding Alec and the stallion on a deserted coast. They learn to trust and love each other and they establish an amazingly strong and close lifelong bond.

After being rescued, Alec befriends retired racehorse trainer Henry Dailey, who lives near Alec. Henry recognizes the Black’s superior breeding, and he and Alec secretly begin training the Black to race. But without a documented pedigree, the Black can only compete as a mystery horse in a match race with the two champions, Cyclone and Sun Raider.
