Horses and Heroes: The Story of the Horse in America for 450 Years
Hunt, Frazier and Robert

Hunt, Frazier and Robert. Horses and Heroes: The Story of the Horse in America for 450 Years. NY: Scribner 1949. 1st ed. 306p + many plates (photos and old images). Very good hardcover in fair d.j. (torn). ** A good history, told through the stories of memorable horses and men. Many of them are well known (Justin Morgan, Traveller, Comanche, etc.); others are less chronicled (Ulysses Grant's Butcher Boy, endurance racer Poison, Appaloosa sire Painter, hardworking mules, etc.). Much on the cavalry and the west, and lots of human interest throughout. (Wells 3894). (Item ID: 16322)
