About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The Dark Horse.

Publisher: Scribners, New York

Publication Date: 1939

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition


A Good plus copy with age discoloring to the gutters of the green cloth binding and a previous owner name on the front flyleaf in a Good unclipped dust jacket with paper loss to the head and heel of the spine and the jacket edges. This is Will James' story of two colts from different regions of the west brought together in the American badlands. At first, the two colts are content to be fed and groomed by human hands. But one day, when someone leaves a corral gate open, Colonel and Charro head off into wild-horse country for adventure and a taste of freedom. Along the way, they outsmart four mountain lions, survive a mustang attack, and kick dirt in the face of the mustangers who want to capture them and sell 'em to the highest bidder. With forty line drawings and colorful prose, Will James vividly renders two weak-kneed, green colts who become the best of their breeds: Colonial, a race-winning champion, and Charro, the wiliest wild mustang the West has ever seen.
