The Black Stallion Overview

The Black Stallion is Walter Farley's tale of the young Alec Ramsay and his relationship with a wild, black horse that the boy meets on a voyage back from India where Alec was visiting his uncle. During the trip, the ship capsizes leaving the boy and the horse stranded on a small island where the two learn to trust each other. After a passing boat rescues them, Alec takes the Black home with him to New York where Alec's neighbor Henry Dailey, a retired jockey, recognizes the Black's incredible size and speed. Alec and Henry surreptitiously train the undocumented wild horse to compete in a race against two champions, Cyclone and Sun Raider.
