This book is absolutely amazing! It tells the story of Isaac Murphy, the gandson of an African American Slave. It shows his journey into the world of jockeys, his trials and triumphs. Growing up AFrican American was definitely hard for Isaac Murphy and after given the opportunity to ride a horse, his jockey career began. It's a novel about the strength of one human being and it shows children an amazing story. The illustrations are incredible and definitely catch the eye. Being from Kentucky and understanding the history of horses, this book is definitely one that I will keep on my bookshelves in a classroom. It show the history of Kentucky, and the journey of an amazing hero in racing. Definitely a fantastic book, and it will be one that I will recommend to many others.
