Gabriel's Triumph - HB
I edge my hands higher, slackening the rein, and nudge my heels against Aristo's sides. The colt hurtles down the track. He runs like he's playing in the field at Woodville Farm.Runs like the rebel raiders are after him...runs because it's in his heart, and this is what he was born to do.
The year is 1864, and twelve-year-old Gabriel a recently freed slave, is making a name for himself in Kentucky.
