KIRKUS REVIEW

It is almost impossible to think of the American Indian without his horse, yet horses did not roam this continent until as late as 1540 when the Spaniards brought them into New Mexico. In this book, realistically illustrated by the author, the horses of the Indian are described, his methods of obtaining them, their training, their use in war and peace, the means by which the Indians treated horses medically, the equipment used in conjunction with training and riding, and, finally, the role horses play in contemporary Indian life. Robert Hofsinde, who has written extensively on Indian subjects, offers the reader interested in riding or scouting a solid body of information on which to base his understanding of an important aspect of American history. This adds another dimension to his book.
