Green Grass of Wyoming is a 1948 American western drama film, directed by Louis King, starring Peggy Cummins and Charles Coburn.

Green Grass of Wyoming is a 1948 American western drama film, directed by Louis King, starring Peggy Cummins and Charles Coburn. The screenplay, written by Martin Berkeley, is based on the third book in the popular, "My Friend Flicka" trilogy, written by Mary O'Hara. The movie follows the further adventures of the McLaughlin family who live on a horse ranch in Wyoming. The original cast from the first two films did not reprise their roles in the third.

Green Grass of Wyoming is the third book of the My "Friend Flicka" stories. Again the characters (including horses) are marvelous. The examples of parenting and a quiet, real-life relationship to God are outstanding. The historical perspective is grand. Mary O'Hara is a masterful author and storyteller. Wonderful book, conclusion of Mary O'Hara trilogy that begins with MY FRIEND FLICKA and THUNDERHEAD. Ken finds a girlfriend, Carey. Thunderhead escapes from The Valley of Horses after poison grasses kill his band, and antagonizes ranchers in Southern Wyoming by stealing their mares to form a new band.

Green Grass of Wyoming book. The conclusion to the Flicka trilogy, Mary O'Hara's Green Grass of Wyoming is a wonderful culmination of the previous two stories' plot lines. In this novel, Thunderhead is on a mare-stealing rampage along the Rockies, and must be stopped. Ken, now a young man, must overcome his fears and uncertainties as he works to track down the rogue stallion. His desire to find the stallion wars with his newfound friendship with one of the stolen mare's owners, young Carey.

Title: Green Grass of Wyoming (1948). The script for this family film, based on Mary O'Hara's book-and sort of a second-cousin to her popular sagas "My Friend Flicka" and "Thunderhead, Son of Flicka"-is perfunctory without being exciting, and the movie is so well-scrubbed it's beatific. Narrator Burl Ives also appears, playing a guitar-strumming ranch-hand (he entertains at the teen-dance singing the totally inappropriate novelty, "I Wish I Were Single Again") and Charles Coburn is Cummins' grandfather, who blames a mythic wild horse from running off with his mares.

By Mary O'Hara? Could you compare the two books with some examples please? Thank you for any info. Sorry, I've never actually read the book you're talking about, before. However, there is a book I think you MIGHT really enjoy, I know I did, and it kind of sounds like it might be similar to the book you are talking about: It's called where the red fern grows. It's a classic and very easy to read.

I read Thunderhead first, then Flicka and Green Grass. I don't consider these children's books at all, have even seen them categorized as "from ages 8-12yrs", wh/is ridiculous; not that kids might not like them, simply these books are not children's books.

Secondly, it's the Hollywood Treatment(Disney type "Horse Movies) that has, IMO, made Flicka and Thunderhead out to be the main interest books, and minimized the real importance and quality of O'Hara's work. I wish so much she had written much more.

I've read the trilogy, and Thunderhead and Green Grass are 2 of the best, most touching and thought provoking stories, written in what I would call the "creative non-fiction" style, I have ever read. By C. non-fiction that O'Hara wrote about her life, her children and husband, just in a "fictionalized" way: names were changed, but I feel the events, for the most part, really happened, and it doesn't matter if they didn't; they could have.

O'Hara's style is clear and direct, I almost feel she is telling me her stories across the kitchen table. Her books are a delight to read. She is authentic, and honest, intelligent and gifted. Her descriptions are profound, as are her musings on life, love, religion and death. O'Hara's books are not horse stories for little boys and girls, they have simply been marketed that way. Anyone who appreciates quality literature will love these books.

I am just finishing Wyoming Summer, cannot recommend these books too strongly.

I started re-reading My friend Flicka and Thunderhead, having read these some thirty years ago and I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed reading the stories just as much as I did then. So it seemed logical to purchase the third and last part of the story of the McLaughlins, Thunderhead and Flicka. And I loved this book as well. Mary O'Hara takes us to more mature ground in this book, as she philosophizes more about the relation of man to God and lets Ken fall in love with Carey.
Mary O'Hara writes very well: she knows what she is talking about, she tells a gripping story with lovable and very real characters and her descriptions of nature in its fierce and gentle aspects show that she deeply loves it. I think that it's a shame that her books are so much linked to all those inferior "girls with horses" books (I bought a paperback version of 'My friend Flicka' and to my horror the package included some kind of charm or necklace).
Written some 60 years ago, this book is still very, very readable and it is a fitting conclusion to a great trilogy.

Green Grass of Wyoming is the third book of the My "Friend Flicka" stories. Again the characters (including horses) are marvelous. The examples of parenting and a quiet, real-life relationship to God [which is quickly developd by living in the rural West] are outstanding. The historical perspective is grand. Mary O'Hara is a masterful author and storyteller. Here's one of my favorite lines:

"Coax the prairie to put an end to the dust storms by creeping back over the gaping earth [Dryland farming scars] and laying over it a luscious cover of greensward. Give it to the cattle and sheep and horses who enrich it as they feed. Let it be grass again!" p.112

Have read this 3-book series by Mary O'Hara so many times over the last 50 or so years. Every time is like the first time I read them.

This book was purchased, to complete the Mary O'Hara trilogy of the Flicka series. It was a good read, but the least favorite of the three. But I did enjoy the McLaughlin family trials. The book comfortably finished the series, and I did not feel readers were left hanging for another writing.

It was a gift for my husband, who as a child lived in Lancaster, OH where the movie was filmed. It exceeded my expectations!

Wonderful book, conclusion of Mary O'Hara trilogy that begins with MY FRIEND FLICKA and THUNDERHEAD.
Ken finds a girlfriend, Carey. Thunderhead escapes from The Valley of Horses after poison grasses kill his band, and antagonizes ranchers in Southern Wyoming by stealing their mares to form a new band. Carey's thoroughbred horse is stolen by Thunderhead and the story continues ...

I read this book as a young teen and it is as fresh and wonderful today as it was then. Anyone who loves horses will LOVE this series.
Read this book in elementary school and purchased it to read with our children.
