Gift quality undated (circa 1940) wartime compliant hardcover in green cloth covered boards with bumped spine ends but tips remain sharp. 128 pp text is crisp and unmarked save for negligible foxing dot on endpapers. Price-clipped, original dust jacket has a 1" closed tear on rear panel and a micro 1/8" chip at head of rear gutter. Green background dj with black line drawing and titles on frt panel and backstrip show a bit of age-toning at periphery of both panels, still displays well in new mylar. Stormy was born during a hurricane. His mother was a white Arabian and his father a gallant black horse trained to carry a knight into battle. The colt was distinguished not only for his ancestry but for the fact that he was the first horse to be born on the North American Continent where his parents had been abandoned by their Spanish masters. We follow the adventures of Stormy as he and his companions wander over the plains and mountains. Drought, prairie fire, mountain lions, Indians, buffalo, and finally mankind itself are some of the enemies that this first American mustang met and battled with. Through his adventures we watch the colt grow to full stature and finally assume the leadership of his band.
