Bloodfire
Gib Rides Home is such a great story about a little boy who is placed in an orphanage after his parents' death. During his stay at the orphanage he learns about the difficulties of and hardships endured by all the other boys who are there as they are given hard tasks to complete, severe discipline for any infraction, and.no one to turn to for help. After a few years of hoping and waiting for someone who might adopt him, a family takes him in, but only for a brief time before he is onece again returned to the orphanage. The story continues to weave though obstacles and trials for Gib, but he doesn't give up. Snyder keeps the pages turning, keeping the reader wondering how this will resolve. It's a delightful book, for both adults and children.

Purchased for school district library. I have heard no complaints (and I would if there were any) so I would assume we are happy with the item.

You can ride home with Gib in Zilpha Keatly Snyder's book called Gib Rides Home. it is a story about an orphanage in the early 1900's in downtown Harristown, Kentucky. Since they could remember, Gib and the loyal Jacob were best friends until Gib met the sweet and sour feeling Olivia at Rocking M. Gib and Jacob are seniors in the Lovell House orphanage. Rocking M is Gib's homtown where his mother and father used to live.
Gib hears about getting farmed-out to very miserable people in the Lovell House of Orphaned and Abandoned boys. When he is adopted, he has a lifetime experience in hes own hometown, Rocking M. The reader will love the book because it is full of great description and excitement. Also, you will love the way the author creates pictures for the different settings. A reader who loves horses will love the book as Gib tries to rescue this horse called Black Silk. When you finish this book, you feel a mixture of happiness and sadness. I hope you enjoy as much as I did this emotional story.

I suppose I should first say that I've been a fan of Zilpha Keatley Snyder's for many years. I'm so pleased to see that this book holds up to her The Velvet Room and The Egypt Game, to name just a few.
I hope CT elementary school students voting for the Nutmeg award give this book a chance, even though the length may be a bit much for some of the younger voters. Gib is a wonderful character: brave, forthright, sweet, caring, and generous. We are told just enough about his life in the orphanage for our hearts to be touched and to yearn with Gib that he will find a home. And we shudder and even tear up a bit when he loses the home he finds and winds up back at the orphanage. But between those events, we cheer for him, we come to love Hy, Hoop, Mrs. Thornton, and even Olivia, and we vicariously enjoy Gib's invigorating rides on the range and the good times he has on the Thorton ranch. Snyder makes her characters and their times come alive. And she feeds us just the right amounts of information in the teasing mystery of why the Thorntons first left him in the orphanage and then, so many years later, came to get him. It certainly made me want to keep reading! (In fact, when I thought I'd lost the book, I was quite upset at the thought that it was going to take me days or weeks to find out Gib's whole story!) There's a sequel to this book, and I certainly intend to read it.

I was recommended this book by my favorite teacher. I put the book of until this year. (That was a major mistake!) I started this book with a headache sop put it way after the first couple of pages. I started back up the very next day and could not put it down. I read the whole book that day. It's now my all time favorite book and I recommended it to everyone.

"You don't have to be a horse fan to love this book!" -Justin

This heartbreaking book makes you happy, sad, cry, smile like never before, and even a little angry at times. The author writes in passion. I think everyone should read this book!

In this story a boy named Gibson Whitaker came back to the orpanage he was in a long time ago.He was adopted to a ranch a few miles from the orpanage. He met a girl there named Olive who was sweet-looking and snotty.(a little!) He also met a man named Hu who was very nice to him.When he went back to the orpanage, Gib told his best friend,Jacob, all about his stay at the ranch. He also told practicly everyone at the orpanage. He told them about the GREAT food,and the horses,one particular whos name was Black Silk. He also told them about how his own mother rode Black Silk and he did too. He wonders if he'll ever really be adopted to someone who loves him. And you'll have to read the book to see what happens at the end!!

Gibson Whittaker became an orphan at Lovell House, but someone adopted him and he thought he got "farmed out," so Gib tried to make the best of were he lived, then he made friends with Livy Thornton and her family, that adopted him. I agree with the way the author wrote this book because I like the way shewas descriptive and she told what Gib thought and what new his family thought. She made the book grab my attention! I would recemend my book to people that like tragic stories and happy endings because there is a lot of that in this book! Take my word for it, it is really good!
Gib is a resilient character cast in the beginning of the 20th century, left alone to grow his formative years at an orphanage. his ability to remain upbeat through trials that no one should have to bear makes for a great story with the satisfying ending.
