Review: Racing to Freedom Trilogy. In the first book of the trilogy, twelve-year old slave Gabriel Alexander longs to earn his freedom and become a famous jockey. While his father serves in the Civil War, Gabriel cares for Master Giles' horses and saves them from a band of Confederate thugs. The action continues in Gabriel's Triumph and concludes in Gabriel's Journey. These books are excellent choices for horse lovers.
