Chapter One
<p
MY FRIEND FLICKA
<p
Mary O'Hara
<p
Ken McLaughlin and his family live on a ranch in Wyoming, where they raise
thoroughbred horses.
<p
WHEN KEN OPENED his eyes the next morning and looked out, he saw
that the house was wrapped in fog. There had been no rain at all since that
day a week ago when the wind had torn the "sprinkling system" to pieces and
blown all the tattered clouds away. That was the day that he had found
Flicka. And it had been terribly hot since then. They had hardly been able to
stand the sun out
