    One thought on “Black Cloud”

    1. Very saddening story about the cruelty and unfairness the wild Mustangs saw in the 1950s (and even what they see today). It was ended on a cliffhanger, which this "series" rarely does.Black Cloud is a wild Mustang, perfectly content, until humans force his herd to run themselves into a pen, and to exhaustion. He loses many horse family members and friends, as well as his beloved Mama. A human girl by the name of Annie rescues him and takes him home to run in a large open space, unhunted. But a h [...]

    2. The ending to this one made me really upset, I read it a long time ago also. But it seemed like it was left on the wrong note, like there should have been a sequel, but of course there wasn't. And it just didn't end on the right note. It should have ended better. Like just the way it ended made me upset. And I liked paged through the book after that, looking for answers as to why there wasn't a better way to end it.

    3. My 7-year-old was not happy about the 'open' ending. My 4 daughters all came to the same conclusion, based on Black Cloud's comments and thoughts. I had to read the story to find out if I would agree, and I did.

    4. This book was boring at first that I almost left this behind, but i'm actually happy that I didn't. Black cloud starts out as the new horse that was just born and is the small one that everybody picks on. But later on he doesn't care about what anyone thinks. He goes through phases is how I can describe it. Happy, Sad, Doesn't care what anyone thinks, Sad, Angry, and then he makes a choice so I don't know the last one.I thought that the book just dragged on. But after a while i started to not wa [...]

    5. This book is the only book in this series that I didn't like. It was very sad, cruel, and graphic for the younger readers.Black Cloud was born on an aopen range with his mother and herd. He lived on in the wild until his herd is rounded up. While in captivity, Black loses many members of his herd and family; including his mother. But, after being rescued by a little girl named Annie, Black Cloud gets a second chance af freedom. I wouldn't recommend this book to readers. Only if you want a very s [...]

    6. This book is number 8 in a horse series that is written from the horses' perspective. Black Cloud is about a wild mustang that is rescued from the Nevada desert by a little girl named Annie. My daughter read this book and loved it. Book would appeal to student's who like horses. Great book for developing empathy. Lots of mustang facts and laws that effect their freedom are included in the back of the text. AR gave it a 4.1 rating.

    7. I am a big fan of the wild mustangs and I think this book captures the struggle of them perfectly! yes some of it can be upsetting and violent but it is true history even some of the characters were real people like the little girl who helped save black cloud was Wild Horse Annie:)

    8. This book was good in the beginning, but it got really sad and I started to hate it. The ending was also very bad.

    9. The best of the whole series. If you don't read any other of the horse diaries read this. :)))))) Very sad

    10. A very good book about a mustang and his choices throughout his life. It's amazing book, and I recommend it to all children and adults.
