The horrors are hinted at, not dwelt upon, so this might be a good introduction to slave catchers etc. Nov 30, B rated it liked it Shelves: The premise of a diary "written" by a horse would probably be appealing to a horse crazy kid but it didn't work that well for me. Nevertheless this series also takes kids back into time and they work better as historical novels.
In this one, the horse comes to the rescue of a runaway slave in 's Vermont. Dec 06, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: Calling all horse lovers! This series is told from the viewpoint of a horse in history. In this book it is a male Morgan horse used on a farm in Vermont shortly after the passing of the fugitive slave law.
Great horse information, although swallowing the parts where the horses speak to each other is a bit of a stretch, and good from a historical fiction standpoint. Jan 01, Lolly rated it it was amazing. Mar 07, Maykala added it. I love horses, so this is why I'm reading these books.

Three years pass, and it is now the spring of The Fugitive Slave Law recently became law, and now it is a crime to help runaway slaves escape to freedom in nearby Canada. When Katie is riding Star in the woods, she finds Eliza, a young slave girl who is trying to escape to Canada where she hopes to find the family she was recently separated from.
She must keep this a secret not only from slave catchers but her own family, who would not want her involved because it is dangerous to help a runaway slave. The story is fast-paced and teaches history painlessly, and I love the illustrations, they are completely adorable. If you know a young reader who loves history or horses this would be a great book to recommend or to give as a gift. Jul 17, David rated it liked it Shelves:
