Sergeant Reckless: The True Story of the Little Horse Who Became a Hero
Illustrator: Iacopo Bruno
When a group of US Marines fighting in the Korean War found a bedraggled little mare, they wondered if she could be trained to as a packhorse. They had no idea that the skinny, underfed horse had one of the biggest and bravest hearts they’d ever known. Author’s note with photograph. Selected bibliography. Full-color illustrations were drawn with pencil and colored digitally.
