    right now i'm into books about farming life, so books that have a theme like Charlotte's Web, The Secret Life of Bees, Peeled (a YA book), etc. Memoirs are good as well because i found alot of those. Thanks guys!

    The Black Stallion Series is a GREAT one!

    One of the more interesting books I've read recently is "Farm City" by Novella Carpenter. It's a sometimes funny, always interesting memoir about a gal who moves to inner-city Oakland and turns an abandoned lot into her own mini urban farm. A highly entertaining and very interesting read.

    I recently finished "The Dirty Life" by Kristin Kimball. It's about her first year running a farm in upstate New York. Beautifully written. Lots of stories about cows, horses, and maybe some chickens. And syrup harvesting.... great read, esp. if you're after books about farming life!

    it might not be about farming but how about "call of the wild" or "whitefang"
