Our family has loved Justin Morgan for years. Horse lover and friend alike will laugh and feel their hearts throb with the gritty pluck of the first of the prized Morgan Horses in this well spun tale. A great reader brings the Early American characters to life with picturesque inflections.
This was a great little story and brought to life by a great narrator. I love listening to John McDonough. I could imagine each of the characters and exactly what they looked like. I felt like I wanted to hold and hug the young boy so many times throughout the book. And I wanted so much for him to have that little horse! I am not really a horse lover - but I loved this horse story.
Little Bub, the horse. He is as game as they come!
Friendly, crackly, and northern.
The little horse that built a nation.
We downloaded this and listened to it for school. The narrator does a wonderful job with the different characters voices, and my son would have listened to the whole 4 hours at one sitting if allowed. I believe this audio version really brought the story to life, and my son still recall alot of details about the story,and it has been several months and many books ago. Highly reccommend.
