This sweeping panorama of horse-related history and lore will captivate readers of all ages. Starting with the miniature Eohippus, the narrative traces the evolution of the horse from prehistory through its roles and representations in Greek mythology, the Middle Ages, early America and the Wild West, and beyond. Profiles include race horses, working and war horses, and a variety of breeds and strains.
Each of the chapters may be read individually as well as consecutively. Numerous charming black-and-white illustrations accompany these true tales of Egyptian pharaohs, medieval knights, cowboys and Indians, and other historic figures and their equine companions.
