KIRKUS REVIEW

Though there is some duplication of horses and their owners with the popular Horses of Destiny, much of this material is refreshingly new, and the focus is on the horses themselves. There's historical value with anecdotal quality in the record of the horse in America, its Spanish progenitor, the famous English racer, a great Virginia sire, the beginning of trotting races, the establishment of the famous Morgan line, trail records, pony express, cross-continental and inter-continental treks, the quarter horse, saddle horse, cow pony. Richly varied, broad panorama.
