KIRKUS REVIEW

From the horse of the dawn of history, through the horse of mythology and ancient history, to the present, -- this is the most thorough and comprehensive volume I have seen. Every phase is included:- the domestication of the horse, the use of the horse in fighting and sporting, in chivalry: the gradual introduction of practical use for stage coaches, pony express, and so forth. Then the glamor aspects, -- hunting and polo and show. Then the working horse; the horses of turf and track; the breeds and strains. Finally, the near relations of the horse, and the far. Not a study of individual famous horses but a complete history of the place of the horse in civilization.
