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.

The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Tully Williams: An Autobiography
Williams, Warren and Elsie, eds

Williams, Warren and Elsie, eds. The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Tully Williams: An Autobiography. Boise, ID: Privately Printed 1976. 261p, a few ills. Very good paperbound, reproduced from typescript as issued. No. 77 of an unspecified limited edition, signed by Warren Williams and Elsie Williams. ** Publishes a 1945 diary written by Tully Williams, who was born in 1870. After a few chapters of family history, the diary deals chiefly with ranching in Montana and North Dakota, horse trading, horse breaking, etc., in the early 20th century. Full of vivid detail and lots of hard work. Williams--who must have had a photographic memory--also worked as a miner, sheep shearer, harvester, sawmill teamster, mail carrier, and more. An engaging read. (Item ID: 9716)
