    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBOkay I'll say it right here at the beginning of this review for me Best Horse Book EverIn my uest as a young girl to read every single horse book I could find I somehow bypassed this one Maybe it was because I would appreciate it even later in life Although parts of it now seem dated it was first published in 1941 it reads best as historical fiction depicting life on a remote Wyoming ranch in the early part of the 20th century Some things like certain expressions and horse training methods might seem harsh to modern readers but were real at the timeThe theme of family however with a demanding father trying to balance the duties of running a ranch with understanding his sensitive son buffered by a loving mother ring just as true today as they must have when this book was first publishedOh but for the love of a horse A filly named Flicka I think a

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBA tough minded wise and beautiful book crossposted from Like so many others I read this book as a child but I've reread it a couple of times as an adult am doing so now As my sister and other reviewers have said this isn't just a horse story for children It's a very adult very sophisticated study of a young couple and their marriage It's also a profound character study of their younger son and the summer that his love for a filly forces him to take large steps toward maturity As a child I identified strongly with 10 year old Ken As an adult I still do but I also empathize with his parents who have to try to teach this brilliant sensitive daydreamer how to accept responsibilit

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBA vivid story about ten year old Ken McLaughlin and his connection with Flicka a filly born on his parents' ranch in Wyoming Ken a sensitive boy given to daydreaming confounds his father Rob McLaughlin whose personality is forthright assertive and demanding When Ken is offered a choice of a young horse to raise and train as his own he chooses Flicka an animal his father believes will be troublesome and untameable But Ken has already imagined his life with Flicka and refuses to make a different choiceKen's mother Nell has a much greater understanding of her younger son's temperament She holds her own among the male dominated life on Goose Bar Ranch and subtly runs interference with her husband on Ken's behalf Howard Ken's older brother alternates between wanting to keep the upper hand over his younger sibling and softening on occasion to help Ken out The first half of the story builds up to the capture of Flicka and the second half follows the form

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBI think this book is my all time favorite I say this because I have read it every 2 years or so since I was young I can't really say that about any other book although I am one of those people that will keep and reread several times books that I like 'My Friend Flicka` is set on a ranch south west of Tie Siding Wyoming Since we live in this area the setting is familiar even though things have changed a lot since 1941 Basically it is your typical coming of age story but it can interest readers of all ages because it's not just about young Ken McLaughlin but his entire family in particular his mother Nell I like stories where most of the action takes place out of doors and that go seriously into the relationships between humans and animals with care Flicka is a really strong element in this story with very well developed character and behavior Still there is so much practicality involved in the way the McLaughlin fami

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBI first read this book when I was eight or nine and have wished for Wyoming ever since It's a lovely story about a shy dreamy kid who hates school and desperately wants his father's respect but who can't help always doing something clumsy or forgetting something important For the summer he wants nothing than to have his own yearling colt to train His father finally reluctantly agrees and Ken chooses the wildest possibly most untrainable one of the bunch This novel has such a sense of place and time and to read it you must absolutely go outside Climb a tree or sprawl in the grass somewhere hopefully someplace lonely with no cars or lawnmowers so that when you close your eyes you can see mountains Originally begun as a short story O'Hara fleshed it out into something really wonderful One of my all time favorites

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBWow What a boring book Like any horse obsessed person I try to see every horse related movie and read nearly every horse related book So perhaps in this case the mistake I made was that I watched the movie first and then read the book In the movie 16 yo girl is misunderstood by her father She fails final exam Father is angry at her and doesn't want her to do anything fun except rewrite her essay so that she'll pass Girl finds wild mustang Girl catches mustang Father is angry; doesn't want her to mess with it because it's dangerous and he considers it 'vermin' Girl of course trains mustang anyway Girl gets injured Father becomes angrier Girl continues training at night Father sells mustang to rodeo Girl is devastated insert heroic rodeo rescue here The most I was expecting was a gender change and some minor tweaking on a few scenes and maybe a little time change But instead what I got was a whack in the faceThe movie is AHMAZING And wh

    My Friend Flicka PDF ☆ My Friend MOBI :ê friend book, flicka free, My Friend download, My Friend Flicka ePUBI had read this book once before when I was uite a bit younger and didn't like it I decided however that I'd put it back and try again when I was older This time reading it through I actually did like it I was rather surprised though because I had heard it suggested as a children's book and I find it a bit mature I'd place it in the young adults category due to some language and subject matterThis book is well known for being a sweet story about a boy and his horse Flicka I however did not find that the most interesting relationship in the book InsteadI found myself most interested in the chapters about the boy's father and mother It is so hard to write a believable marriage and I think Mary O'Hara did that in this book
