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.

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)
