The black stallion book summary
The pair are subsequently stranded on a desert island after their ship sinks. Well darned if I know, because Farley left us hanging, though it was clearly his intent that this be the final book in his series because he'd pretty much obliterated every part of it we might've still cared about. He is a forgotten jockey legend. Sure he's a well known jockey. As a book in itself, The Girl wasn't THAT bad in comparison to the others, but if you take it as part of the series, it's clear Farley has made alterations to characters and the world just to suit his purposes. In Legend He is big, strong, and bold. Did Alec die? They train the Black's second colt for the Hambletonian Stakes , harness racing's most prestigious race, equivalent to thoroughbred racing's Kentucky Derby. He has his horse, but even that is sporadic, especially out in the wild.

Jimmy hopes that the great Black Stallion has given his son the speed and will to win. Otherwise, it just didn't make sense.

A boy, Steve Duncan, and his archaeologist friend, Pitch, spend two weeks on a desolate Caribbean island, called Azul blue in Spanish Island, where they discover an entrance to a hidden valley through underground tunnels built by Spanish Conquistadors. Did everyone die? After being rescued, Alec befriends retired racehorse trainer Henry Dailey, who lives near Alec. Not that he hadn't done that before, but I think he went too far that time, especially when you realize that it was literally just the setup for this mess of a book. These three stories do not intersect, and only one of them is even slightly resolved despite the fact that Farley tells us Alec has somehow resolved his grief in some meaningful way that doesn't actually make sense. Ramsay has a more prominent role in the books than his wife, later helping to run Hopeful Farm's business affairs. One, an Arab sheikh, claims he is the Black's rightful owner, while the other attempts to murder the beautiful steed. Sure he's a well known jockey. During a rival band's attempt to steal him, the colt escapes and learns to survive on his own in the high mountains.
