The Black and Flame Jun 27, 2006
In this book we get the first meeting of Walter Farley's two most famous Horses the Black Stallion (The Black) and the Island Stallion (Flame). During a bad storm the plane, Alec, The Black and Henry are on, crashes. The Black and some mares and their foals, get separated from the human survivors. The Black and his small band, end up finding Azul Island, where Flame is King of his herd. While Henry and Alec eventual get rescued and taken to another island. However they refuse to leave with out looking for the Black. The Black enjoys his found freedom, but two powerful stallions can never coexist for long
The chapters alternated between Alec and Henry's POV , and The Blacks, which is quite interesting to see Walter write from the Horses prospective, something I don't think he ever did before, nor again as far as I know.
We also have a rapid Vampire Bat that stirs up trouble for both the humans and the horses.

The story is about a black stallion and a red stallion trying to survive on a island. On the plane the black stallion crashed on the island. The island has the red stallion named Flame that has a herd. On the island the black stallion fights the red stallion. Who will win the fight for both the herd and for life? One will die and one may live.
An odd book Mar 9, 2005
I have no idea where Walter Farley got the idea for this book. It was definitely one of his stranger ones! The Black ends up shipwrecked on Azul Island, the home of Flame. This is exciting enough to me, but Walter Farley throws in a rabid vampire bat for some reason! To make things even odder, the bat keeps dive-bombing and attacking horses in the herd which somehow ends up with Flame and The Black working together. It is quite unrealistic. I am not saying the two stallions should have killed each others; whatever Walter Farley likes to say about "killer wild stallions", 95% of fights between stallions don't result in serious injuries, let alone death. Stallions want to win, not murder each other. However, I don't think the two of them would have teamed up to face the "horrible menace" of the rabid bat. Also, bats do not display rabies. It has been proven that they can carry it with apparently no ill effects, so to have a foaming-at-the-mouth, "insane" bat attacking full grown horses is ludicrous! Vampire bats don't attack anything; they sneak up on SLEEPING animals, make a tiny cut, and lap up the blood without even waking the victim due to special chemicals in their mouths. So in all, a rather disappointing book in my opinion. I love The Black and Flame, but this was not one of the better books involving them.
The Black Stallion Jan 25, 2005
The Black Stallion and Flame is an awesome book! It is about a boy who gets in a plane accident and loses his horse The Black. The Black helps other mares gets saftly to an island. Later in the story it talks about how The Black finds Flame and they help eachother. The boy finally finds his horse. I recommend this book!
VERY GOOD BOOK Feb 16, 2003
I happen to disagree w/ the person that said that the book was horrible. I loved this book so much. Everytime I read it, I'm on the edge of my seat wondering if everything is going to turn out ok, even though I know what is going to happen. I have probably read the book 7-8 times since I found it in a box that my mom used to have. I have read about half the books and I love them all. I would definitly recommend this book to anyone that loves horses!
