From the pen of Australia's most respected and loved children's writers, comes a collection of stories about horses … and even stories from the horse's mouth!

The story of the first horse to be tamed hundreds of years ago by a young girl; another story of horses and centaurs in Roman times; a glorious tale of King Arthur's horse in the days of Camelot; a heartbreakingly simple but deeply moving story of a young Aboriginal boy, kept prisoner by a settler because the boy is the only one who can ride an aggressive black stallion; the baker's horse tells us the story of his time, the time before motor cars; and then there's the outlaw's horse fleeing the police – an exciting life indeed!

These special stories will appeal to all lovers of horse tales. It is a collection that few children, or adults, will be able to resist.
