KIRKUS REVIEW

A short and lively historical survey of the roles horses have played in society is written and illustrated by the author of Horses Across America (1953). In ancient Assyria horses changed the strategy of conquest; in Greece their mythological roles loomed high; Joan of Arc and Genghis Khan were famous personalities who used horses in later eras; and in America horses were basic to pioneering. These and more are some of the well chosen highlights about peoples and their leaders and their relationships to the horses that helped them.
