Felicity Merriman, the heroine of the American Girls collection set in 1774, is a feisty young girl who loves horses. She is not interested in the things girls are educated in such as sewing and domestic arts. When an unpleasant neighbor obtains a horse and mistreats it because it will not be tamed, Felicity manages to both tame and free the horse. This book has interesting characters and an engaging plot. Illustrations are beautiful and detailed. Recommended reading age: 7-10 ( )

When I was younger, I used to have a ton of books like this that told the stories of young girls "in the old days" because my mother is a huge "judge the book by the cover" person and would bring anything home that reminded her of Laura Ingalls. This book was one of those, so I know I read it, but it was so long ago that I can't remember anything except that I liked she had red hair and this book probably contributed to my love of reading.
