As Black Beauty told his story, so Assault does the same - he tells his own story from the begining. This book would also make a great gift for a child who loves reading about great horses.

Product Overview

How would a small, stumbling colt with the tough name of Assault tell his own story of courage and victory?

Before 1946, only one man saw promise in that chestnut colt. Assault, as a very young colt, had suffered serious injury to his right front foot. Bob Kleberg of Texas' famed King Ranch looked past Assault's limp and saw potential for race-worthy speed.

More importantly, he recognized the horse's heart and courage, which would be tested throughout his problem-plagued career...

'Assault, The Cripled Champion' recaptures life in another era through the eyes of a noble horse who never gave up.

Illustrated by Charles Shaw. Larger sized print.
