Two books in one: Old Sam, Thoroughbred Trotter and Old Sam and the Horse Thieves! Homesteading would not have been the same for 10-year-old Johnny Scott and his younger brother, Lee, if they'd had to do it without Old Sam.

Mr. Scott soon discovers Old Sam's uncanny and invaluable ability to do any task a larger, stronger farm horse can do. What the boys find out is that, besides being the smartest horse in the world, Old Sam still loves to trot and he is still fast. His awkward appearance and hidden talents make for hilarious and rousing situations as Johnny and Lee and their buddies, Jess and Levi French, tackle homestead lifefrom 4th of July celebrations, to life and death races, to catching thievesin the Dakota Territory of the 1880s. Ages 10 and up.

If you like horses, family stories or historical tales, you'll love this lively, humorous tale of two boys growing up in the Dakotas in the late 1800s. A great read-aloud and a beloved book in our family.
