Mary O'Hara is most often remembered for her book My Friend Flicka. Wyoming summer is a compilation of her diaries for a summer on the Wyoming ranch she and her husband ran for years.
One thing comes out clearly, if you own livestock, you will have dead stock too. At times she seems heartless about the tragedies that happen through the summer. Being a livestock owner myself I can relate to this in a way as you insulate yourself from the grief of loss of animals you love.
Another thing comes out to
Das Buch erzählt die Geschichte über eine Freundschaft zwischen dem Jungen Ken und dem Stutfohlen Flicka, wie er das Pferd zähmt und eine wunderbare Pferdefreundschaft entsteht. Die Buchserie um das Pferd Flicka von Mary OHara erreichte einen grossen Erfolg. Es erschienen die Bände Mein Freund Flicka, Grünes Gras der Weide, Sturmwind Flickas Sohn, Ein Sommer mit unseren Pferden.

A short memoir about Mary O'hara's experiences with her husband running a summer time boy's school and camp on their Wyoming ranch. Also, some of her experiences composing music.
Young people probably would not like this, but adults who enjoy the Flicka trilogy will enjoy this look at Wyoming ranching.

Recommends it for: people who like romance / women's fiction
Recommended to BoekenTrol by: Moem

Een boek dat ik beslist niet ga lezen omdat het niet mijn genre is. Maar, omdat het in de boekendoos van Moem zat, heb ik het geregistreerd voor BookCrossing en ga ik het loslaten. Ofwel in het wild, of naar iemand die er belangstelling voor heeft.
Het zijn niet zulke grote letters, dus ik weet niet of een bejaardenhuis geschikt is...

First Book I Read In About 1 Year Not For School.
One of the many books about horses I read after I finally admitted that I liked them. I was ten. I discovered that I had a thing for cowboys. Not much has changed since. ;-)
