He was a giant of a horse, glistening black - too big to be pure Arabian. The head was that of the wildest of all wild creatures - a stallion born wild - and it was beautiful, majestic, splendid. 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.

Enthralling! One of the best books I've ever read, and I read a lot! This is the first book in the series where a boy called Alec Ramsay is returning from India on a ship. They pick the Black Stallian up on the way. There is a storm where they get shipwrecked on a deserted island. The story is about how they survive on the island, how they get back home and the outcome of a race. I want to read the rest of the series now. I am 9 years old.
This really is an awesome book. I've read it over and over and over again!

I think this series is a beautiful picture of the Arabian horse, and how wonderful they are. Especially The Black Stallion. He is the beautiful black Arabian who Alek treasures above all else. Hes the fastest and strongest of all. The Black Stallion.
