"Blitz" written by Hetty Burlingame Beatty and illustrated by Joshua Tolford. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company, copyright 1961. Weekly Reader Children's Book Club.
Blitz was no ordinary horse. He had within him a quality of greatness which gave him the power to give his best and more - whenever it was needed. Carefully trained and well cared for, he soon became the most talked about fire horse in Drumlin-fast and sure and first at almost every fire. Then a fearful accident injured both Blitz and his driver and the great fire horse's days were over. Bliz was sold to a cruel master and needed all his courage and strength to live through the next few years.
The story of how he is saved by the love and care of a boy, and of how he in turn is able to save a child's life, makes a dramatic and moving book in the old tradition. There are happy times and sad times, and a warmth in the telling that will satisfy anyone who loves a good horse story.
