    About "Walter Farley"

    1. Walter Farley

      Walter Farley s love for horses began when he was a small boy living in Syracuse, New York, and continued as he grew up in New York City, where his family moved Young Walter never owned a horse But unlike most city children, he had little trouble gaining firsthand experience with horses his uncle was a professional horseman, and Walter spent much of his time at the stables with him He wasn t the most successful trainer of race horses, Mr Farley recalled, and in a way I profited by it He switched from runners to jumpers to show horses to trotters and pacers, then back to runners again Consequently, I received a good background in different kinds of horse training and the people associated with each Walter Farley began to write his first book, THE BLACK STALLION, while he was a student at Brooklyn s Erasmus Hall High School and Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania, and finished it while he was an undergraduate at Columbia University It was published by Random House when he was 26 He used his first advance to go traveling and after that hardly stopped longer than it took him to write another book He traveled and lived in Mexico, Hawaii, the South Seas, most of the South American countries, the Caribbean Islands, and Europe.The appearance of THE BLACK STALLION in 1941 was hailed by enthusiastic boys and girls all over the country An avalanche of mail urged Mr Farley to write about Alec Ramsey and the Black But World War II intervened Mr Farley went into the US Army, where he spent the next five years Most of the time he was assigned to Yank, the army weekly magazine, and he was also trained in the Fourth Ard Division.After the war Walter Farley resumed the adventures of Alec and the Black with THE BLACK STALLION RETURNS This was followed by SON OF THE BLACK STALLION Then Mr Farley tried his hand at a story about a new boy, Steve Duncan, and a new horse, Flame, in THE ISLAND STALLION Mr Farley s readers were just as delighted with this book as his others.Mr Farley went on to write many stories about the two stallions, and about other horses as well Children of all ages have found Farley titles to enjoy, since many of the later stories were written for Mr Farley s own children when they were too young to read his Stallion novels And older readers and adults have been gripped by his fictionalized biography of America s greatest Thoroughbred, Man O War Walter Farley s titles reached a grand total of 34 The 21 Black Stallion and Island Stallion stories are still in print and selling steadily His readers respond with passion, writing him thousands of letters and emails every year In May 1949, the first Black Stallion Club was founded, in Kentucky Mr Farley designed a membership button for it the button was in constant demand among his readers for years The Black Stallion books were so popular in the late 1940s and 50s that they York Times annual list of best selling children s books Three nationwide Black Stallion contests were held Walter Farley s books have been published abroad in than 20 countries, including Austria, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, England, Israel, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaya, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as in the United States and Canada.All his life Walter Farley remained a keen spectator of the racing scene, and he enjoyed nothing than hobnobbing with horse trainers and other professional horsemen It is thanks to these people that his books are so full of authentic details of raising and training horses When not busy working or traveling, Mr Farley liked to ride dressage and high school Lippizaner horses He also sailed and sometimes raced his 35 foot auxiliary sloop Circe Mr Farley and his wife Rosemary, had four children Pam, Alice, Steve, and Tim, whom they raised on a farm in Pennsylvania and in a beach house in Florida In addit

    1. And finally, what you’ve all been waiting for: THE BLACK AND FLAME MEET! [dramatic music]So seriously, I’m beginning to think that Farley was very bored of writing these stories. He really seems to have gone off the deep end. At least there were no extraterrestrials this time. Instead, he incorporates a plane wreck, the idea that the Black would bypass multiple islands and instead find the secret hidden sea entrance of Flame’s island, a rabid vampire bat, and the mysterious beyond-comprehe [...]


    2. 9/2012 Oh, man. I re-read this before I noticed it was on my never-again shelf. Seriously: never again! This one is crammed full of cliches and ridiculousness. Stay away.8/2011 Didn't hold up so well, sadly. A rabid vampire bat? Rilly? *sigh* So many things wrong here, starting with the bat's behaviour. No, no, no!All the Flame books disappointed me this go-round, and they won't be staying on the shelf any longer.


    3. I recently found this book among my childhood keepsakes. In rereading it again 40+ years later It obviously doesn't hold up to the same level of entertainment it did as a young girl. An apparent favorite, if I had reviewed it then, I no doubt would have given it 5 stars.


    4. Absolutely an excellent read. But I wonder if two stallions could be able to get along in certain situations like that. The fact that the Black can come back and forth from the wild and due to the fact that the love for Alec is so strong it touches me deeply.


    5. DNF - I believe this is where I stopped reading the series. Don't remember why, though, so I'll leave it at that.



    6. I was never a fan of Flame's books. The first one was okay, but after that things kind of went far down hill. That said, I think of this one more as the Black's story than Flame's. Still, there comes a time when enough is enough and you have to say we've visited the island for the last time, otherwise the getting there feels a little forced. I don't have much trouble getting past that in this book, though. Even though it is a little contrived, the action moves along and we get to imagine the thi [...]


    7. Still trying to decide exactly what I think about this book. It has the problem that a lot of the other Black Stallion books seem to have, which is sometimes I feel like the author is running out of ideas. In this case I was frustrated that he felt the need to once again have the Black and Alec involved in a plane crash, although I realize it was just a plot device to bring the Black together with the wild Flame. From there he introduces the conflicts in the story: Alec looking for his horse, a [...]


    8. Um, a vampire bat. And a plane crash into the ocean.Some of this was justt reallykely. I don't want to say it's implausible or that it couldn't have happened, because it could have, stranger things have happened, it's just highly unlikely. I wish he would have found a morealistic, though I hesitate to use the term, way of bringing the two together for the first time.I did believe Flame and the Black teaming up against the bat because even in animals, a common enemy is a uniting force. And I'm gl [...]


    9. While I always love reading about The Black Stallion, my favorite times are those between him and his beloved boy Alec. The Black Stallion and Flame keeps them separated for most of the story, and so it's not as enjoyable for me as some of the other books in the series. Even so, I couldn't skip it in a reread of the series.The Black Stallion and Alec Ramsey find themselves crashing into the sea once more. This time they are separated, and both fight for their lives in this sort-of-thrilling adve [...]


    10. I suppose it was inevitable for Walter Farley to have his two most famous creations -- the Black Stallion and the Island Stallion -- meet in not one, but two books, where the stallions compete in the two things they are best at -- fighting and racing. Here is the fighting challenge book.I absolutely adored this book as a kid, but as an adult I cannot help but wince at how Farley turned the series into a caricature of itself. Here's another plane crash, another stallion fight, yada yada. And, to [...]


    11. Loved the book when I was a child. Walter Farley had a way of speaking to me. His horse books have an odd romantic aspect to them that helped develop my appreciation for horses as a youngster. I'd recommend any Farley book to youngsters growing up. Today they speak to a different day and time. A better day and time, when things were simpler; society, ethics, and people's belief in a concept of right.


    12. Walter Farley is a great author and makes the Black Stallion books great. The black has seen Flame before but now they meet and what a meet it is. This book kept me reading and guessing. It will captivate you and hold you till the end. Another great by Mr. Farley. Recommended for anyone who loves the Black Stallion series.


    13. Ohh, I loved this book as an 11 year old. I even wrote an (in retrospect) extremely amatuerish fanfiction for it, back before fanfiction even existed The idea of the Black and Flame squaring off in a fight tickled me


    14. I raced through this series as a child. Of course, "The Black Stallion" was my favorite, and I read it a few times, but I waited eagerly for any of the books to return to my branch of the library so I could snap them up.


    15. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.


    16. This is one of my favorite books in the series, the Black meets Flame on Flame's island. Part of the theme is a rabid vampire bat, which the two Stallions must ward off. One of my favorite books ever!


    17. It can get tricky when a writer decides to combine two favourite horses from slightly different worlds. It was still enjoyable though, although not as much as others in the series. I could sense Mr Farley's frustration in deciding how to end it by the way Alec talks about the race at the end.


    18. Totally ridiculous. I'm amazed at how hot and cold this series runs as I've journeyed on my re-read. The Black and Flame "team up" (no joke) to fight off a rabid vampire bat (again, no joke). Stupid book.






    19. I think this book was really good(Along with other of Walter Farleys books) But I like some of the other black stallion books better.Still A favorite!!


    20. The very first book I bought in the series through scholastic books via school. After I got it I found out it was part of a set and the rest is history lol.
