Preview of National Velvet Summary:

National Velvet is a stirring reminder that one does not have to wait until maturity to arrive at greatness; one need not be held back by gender or lack of money. Velvet Brown's story is a timeless account of an individual rising above the conventional views that hold people back from realizing their dreams.
