Item Description...
Location: North America, United States Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) Oregon early 1900s It's the early 1900's, and the Fellows family has decided to make a go of homesteading in the Oregon high desert. But the venture has been disastrous. Inexperienced Mr. Fellows resents any advice from his wife, who grew up on a farm. Ma is not only troubled about that, but 7-year-old Ellie's chronic illness is a source of worry and expense. 12-year-old Chris eases his own misery by stealing away from work to watch a neighbor's wild black pony, only to get into trouble. Then, when it seems things could not get worse, Fellows gets drunk and dies. Not willing to give up, Ma stubbornly-and creatively-seeks a way for the family to stay in Oregon. Frank Chase, an unintentional element in the death of Chris's father, is added to the mix and challenged by Ma to keep his word to help the family. The dramatic and sometimes humorous contest of wills comes to a satisfying culmination when, after Frank's purchase of the wild black pony for Chris, Ma is reluctantly forced to once again use her "backbone of steel" for the good of all. A great family read-aloud!

Another Great Horse Story!  May 24, 2000
I think that this book was a wonderful story, very good put together, about a boy who's dream pony becomes his and a broken family who slowly begins to grow as one. I love how Walt Morey makes having the pony, just a fantasy, but a dream comes true and it made me smile when the boy finally gets to grasp his dream upon all the hard times he was facing. Together, Chris and his pony, Lucifer, help out the family. Once you get within it's pages, you can't put it down. Another great horse story by Walt Morey!
WOW!!!!!  Sep 28, 1999
This book is very boring in the begining, but beleive me, it is worth reading to the end. It's about a boy who dreams of owning one of Sam Flecher's ponys, but that dream is quickly demolished because his father is accidently killed by a man named Frank Chase. Now, his widdowed mother had to try to rais the farm and family by herself, but finds it too hard and turns to her husband's accidenlal killer. After a few months of living with his new step father, who isn't that bad of a guy, Frank finds out about Chris's dream of owning the pony and gets it for him. Altho the horse is wild, Chris still trys to tame and break Lucifer , the pony, in and succeeds. Christmas falls and Chris is sent to get a present from town for his sister when on the way back gets lost and it is up to Lucifer to get them home. After they get home, Lucifer becomes very ill. Chris, Frank, and Mable (Chris's mom) stay up all night trying to make Lucifer better.Finally, after hard work and some home remidys, Lucifer is all better! Now, instead of being two familys who live together, they are like a family.
