Product Description:

A grandfather and his blind grandson, Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses, reminisce about the young boy's birth, his first horse, and an exciting horse race.

In this poignant story, the counting rope is a metaphor for the passage of time and for a boy's emerging confidence facing his greatest challenge: blindness. "While classified as an Indian story, the love, hope, and courage expressed are universal." - Booklist, Starred Review.

For ages 5 to 8.
