Book Review ~ I Rode A Horse of Milk White Jade

I Rode A Horse Of Milk White Jade
Author: Diane Lee Wilson

When Oyuna was a baby, a horse accidentally crushed her foot. 

One fateful day, soldiers from the great Khan's army invade her village to steal horses and gather new soldiers. In hopes of bringing honor to her family. Oyuna courageously disguises herself as a boy and joins the soldiers on their quest.

With only her horse and her cat to keep her company. Oyuna sets off on an amazing journey across deserts and mountains ~ a journey that will change her life forever.

We enjoyed reading this book.
It is a wonderful story about courage, friendship, and bravery.
Oyuna is crippled, she never gives up. It is a wonderful life lesson, even if you have a handicap, you can take on the adventure.

"But just when I am thinking about death, Oyuna, something happens that reminds me that life is not all sadness. And this time this gift comes from your mare."

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go"

  1. I love the Dr. Suess quote. Do you read along with the boys? To the boys? Before the boys? Do you have your own little book club with them? I'm very curious.

  2. It sounds like a good book! I love the message behind it as well.

  3. My daughter and I would probably both love this one. :D Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  4. Love the Dr.Suess quote :)
    The book sounds inspiring.
