I LOVED this book. I was a big horse lover as a child - almost obsessive about them. I read every book I could find about horses (fiction and nonfiction), kept scrapbooks about the Triple Crown, and watched every horse show on TV. This book brought all that back and more. Letts captured the emotions of the era well, and explained the attraction of Snowman, the Cinderella Horse. Filled with pictures of the horse and his owner, this is highly recommended for any one who has ever loved a horse - or a "rags to riches" story.
