War Horse Chapter 21 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Emilie's Grandpapa tells Albert the long sad story of Emilie and Joey. After one final hearty cry, the old man offers to sell Joey to Albert for a penny and a promise: "that [Albert] will always love [Joey] as much as Emilie did" (21.16).
  • Of course, Albert agrees. He buys Joey and travels back home.
  • We can't believe it. Joey lived 'til the end. Okay, now we've got tears of joy.
  • Back in the village, Joey is reunited with old Zoey and lives happily ever after with his new family. Sigh.
