We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Homestretch: A Celebration of North America's Greatest Tracks
Stout, Nancy

Stout, Nancy. Homestretch: A Celebration of North America's Greatest Tracks. Philadelphia: Running Press 2000. 224p, many old and new photos (by the author, Michael Amoruso and others). Very good hardcover in d.j. ** This richly illustrated survey of 15 tracks covers their history, architecture, and famous people and horses associated with them. A little material is reused from the author's earlier book, Great American Thoroughbred Racetracks, but this is an entirely different book. Saratoga, Belmont, Keeneland, Santa Anita, etc., some of which are no more. (Item ID: 10799)
