The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses

The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses - Paul Goble

I loved this book when I was a child, and it's still great. It tells the story of a Native American girl who loved wild horses. When the herd living near her tribe flees in fright from a storm, she jumps on the back of one and is carried far away from her tribe. She is seen later, living as one among the wild horses. Tailored for students in 4th and 5th grades, this book makes a great addition to fiction lessons. I would read this book aloud to the class to supplement cultural fiction and native american mythology lessons.
