    1. Decades ago, I found this hardback in a used-book sale. I wasn't too impressed with it, although I think Wildwing is a really cool name for a horse and it showed Native Americans in a positive light. Other than that, I have no memory of it. Didn't make that much of an impression, I guess.Cover image: very yellow buckskin foal on a white background and a boy standing in the background.

    2. Has that "Old-Timey" writing style which was just simpler, easier to read, and didn't elaborate and describe to death. Don't understand why the family wouldn;t have been more upset over the low-down car deal, though.
