The Wild One by Eve Bunting

The Wild One is a horse story for young readers.  It is focused on an eleven year old boy who doesn’t seem to fit into his surroundings.  Horses feature heavily in this children’s story, but there is also a delightful tale of the Cheyenne people and their way of life.  Unfortunately for Snow Deer, although he feels at home as a Cheyenne, his tribe doesn’t agree that he belongs.

Snow Deer’s father was a white man.  The young boy inherited his father’s looks – including blonde hair – and his love for painting.  Neither seems to fit into the world of hunting for food and fading into the background of nature.  Snow Deer finds himself a victim of bullying from the other Cheyenne boys.  The young boy wonders how he can convince them he is staying.

A chance meeting with a white horse has Snow Deer finding something else that doesn’t fit in.  In time the stallion is caught but the Cheyenne conclude he’ll be no good with his pale colouring that will show up easily in the day and night.

Wanting to prove himself, Snow Deer vows to break in the white stallion.  A wild ride results in the two having the chance to change the history of the Cheyenne people for good.  The Wild One is an interesting and realistic read with a lovely horse focus.  Young readers are sure to enjoy the story.

“A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.” ― Gerald Raftery
