KIRKUS REVIEW

From the Bedouin boy, Tamad, and his Arab stallion, to Pegasus and Bellerophon, to King Arthur and the Unicorn, to the Great Medicine Horse of the Crow Indians, this volume runs the gamut of horse stories from legend and historical fact. Less distinctively written than of a Korean Grandmother there are perhaps too many of these that follow too closely one after the other as well as some that are vaguely situated as to place and time. The good over-all idea and occasional fiashes of vivid description lose force in these detracting elements. William D. Hayes' drawings have the strength to bolster some of the weaknesses.
