KIRKUS REVIEW

For several years there has been a crying need for this type of book, on the Derrydale list -- now we've got it -- the wait was worth it. Horses, Horses Horses. We want more David Grays and Gordon Grands -- well, you've got Kenneth Brown now so up and after the customers who enjoyed The Silver Horn. Believe it or not, there's golf in it, too. For golfers have been slighted in the sporting story line and they've set up a howl. So here they are all fixed up with some rattling good golfing yarns. The illustrations by W. Smithson Broadhead, wash drawings reproduced in colotype, add immeasurably to its charm. There is a corking sense of humor and appreciation of the ridiculous throughout -- I'm still sore from laughing over Hee-Haw Hee-Haw. The sight of a mule will always mean ""Alexander Hamilton"" to me. Virginia, India, New York, this wide range gives additional entertainment reminiscent of Snaffles, Edwards and the English books which always throw in a bit of pig-sticking or polo for the Colonials' enjoyment and a wider sale. The same will be true of these stories for Yankees or Southerners, men, women and children who love the chase, huntin' or steeplechasin' or following the elusive little white ball. They're everybody's stories, they're swell!
