Green Grass of Wyoming

I finished reading the My Friend Flicka trilogy, which includes; My Friend Flicka, Thunderhead and Green Grass of Wyoming. I had read them years ago when I was in high school, but didn’t realize at the time how “Steinbeckian” they were. I guess I skipped over the literary bits and went straight to the horse bits. I also didn’t realize how harsh some of the training methods were with the horses because I didn’t know much about proper horse training at the time. Plus, it was the late seventies/early eighties and back then “cowboy training” was the norm.

I inherited the first two books from my Granny and they were 1940s era editions, so I splurged and bought a first edition copy of Green Grass of Wyoming from Amazon.

These are well written books and I highly recommend them. Like I said, I didn’t remember how literary they were. I plan on writing individual reviews for each one soon, I just have a lot on my plate right now, as many of us do in these uncertain times.

Stay well everyone and get Covid vaccinated if you can!
