Black Storm: A Horse of the Kansas Hills by Thomas C. Hinkle, 7th Scholastic paperback printing, T54, 1964, 190 pages. Illustrated by Thomas L. Sinnickson.
DESCRIPTION:“No one could ride Black Storm- no one but Joe Bain, the only cowboy the great horse trusted. Then one night the black gelding was stolen.
He was beaten and starved, but his proud spirit remained unbroken. At last, he escaped, to a desperate freedom haunted by man and wolf. And while Joe Bain searched the Kansas hills, a defiant Black Storm dodged bullets and timber wolves to find the only man he would serve.“(from the back cover)
