But just as he's puzzling over the clues, something even more disturbing happens. An Arabian chieftan shows up and reclaims the Black. Is there any connection between the two? Alec thinks so. He's convinced the answer lies somewhere deep in Arabia - and he'll stop at nothing to be with the Black once again. So he embarks on an adventure that takes him halfway around the globe and across scorching desert sands to an exotic world of evil and intrigue... Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
In this, the second book in the series, the heart-stopping adventures of the Black Stallion continue as Alec discovers that two men are after the Black. One claims to be the Black’s rightful owner and one is trying to kill the beautiful steed. An Arab chieftain proves his ownership of the Black and takes him away, but Alec is determined to find his horse again. Following the pair to Arabia, Alec encounters great evil and intrigue, as only a horse as spectacular as the Black could inspire.

Mr. Farley went on to write thirty-three other enormously popular books about the Black Stallion and other horses which were published in more than twenty countries. He died in 1989, shortly before the publication of his last novel, The Young Black Stallion, written with his son Steven.
