By Don Alanzo Taylor; Illustrated by Lorence F. Bjorklund

Homesteading would not have been the same for 10-year-old Johnny Scott and his younger brother without Old Sam. Once a thoroughbred trotter on his way to championship, a crippling accident allows the Scott family to inherit him, a horse no one else wants. What the boys find out is that, besides being the smartest horse in the world, Old Sam still loves to trot and he is still fast. His awkward appearance and hidden talents make for hilarious and rousing situations as Johnny and Lee and their buddies, Jess and Levi French, tackle homestead life-from 4th of July celebrations, to life and death races, to catching thieves-in the Dakota Territory of the 1880's.
