In the past I've read and enjoyed books written by Glenn Balch, and this story is not an exception.

Little Falcon knows what he wants, from before the Paint colt is even born. Through hardships and trials, despite setbacks that would cause others less determined to give up, the son of his tribe's chief relentlessly pursues his dream of taming and riding Shadow, son of the wild stallion from the high mesa.

Started a little slow, but I quickly was pulled into the narrative, and finished this book in 'one sitting'.

Book description
244 p. Illustrated by Nils Hogner. Following custom, Little Falcon, son of Chief War Cloud, chooses from his father’s herd a horse which will carry him on hunts, and be his companion for years to come. War Cloud was disappointed when Little Falcon selected a mare, but Little Falcon was smarter than the older members of the tribe knew. For soon the mare gives birth to a colt, Shadow, who had in his veins the blood of the great wild stallion.
