"There is no denying the fact that man arrived at his present high station in life on the back of a horse." So begins Roger Caras's glimpse into the history and significance of man's most industrious animal. Caras, current president of the ASPCA, provides an extraordinary compilation of twenty-seven classic horse tales, including stories written by well-known authors such as Mark Twain, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Rudyard Kipling. Each story is beautifully written, and wonderfully entertaining. In Mary Wilkins Freeman's "The Doctor's Horse, " the reader is introduced to a spirited horse that seems predestined for only one owner, a doctor, whose youthfulness is ignited by the horse's presence. William F. Nolan's "Shadow Quest" follows the relationship between a lonely drifter and a wild horse appropriately named Diablo. And, in J. Lincoln Steffens's "The Old Jim Horse, " a fire chief determines the fate of the department's old work horse. This anthology is a great gift book for any horse lover or animal lover. Be sure to check out Caras's companion books, "Roger Caras' Treasury of Great Cat Stories" and "Roger Caras' Treasury of Great Dog Stories."
