Elska--Horse Diaries Book Review
Amma is a girl who lives in Iceland around 1000 AD. She has a special relationship with Elska, a silver dapple filly born on her family's farm. As Elska develops into quite a fast pace racer, the story revolves around if Amma how can keep this talented horse when racers are valued gifts to local powerful men.
This is a cute story. I loved the illustrations of Icelandics and people attired in historic Norse garb. I was amused that the riders were depicted in s-shaped safety stirrups--pretty sure that this is not period.
