KIRKUS REVIEW

Extracts and excerpts from fiction and historical writings create a panorama of the horse from the days of Marco Polo and de Soto to J. Frank Dobie and Paul Brown. There are sections on the kinds of horses, on races and rides, on war horses, the taming and training of horses -- and on the mule. Wild horses to military heroes, horse swapping and polo and steeplechasing, the headless horseman, desert and western horses, a milkman's and the fire-engine horse, etc., etc., this provides a rounded collection for ""all true lovers of the horses.
