Long before the discovery of the wheel, horses played an essential role in the life of man. From agriculture, to transportation, to warfare, all major civilizations for which we have written records depended upon this magnificent creature. A prolific author and professional horse trainer, Hyland explores the vital role that the horse has played in the progress of humankind on a global scale. Images from documentary, archaeological, and literary sources supplement the text.

While the ancient world was vast and varied, the presence of the horse formed a common thread in many diverse regions. From the Hittites to Persia to the Seleukid Kingdom in Mesopotamia, in Egypt, Thrace, Rome, Byzantium, Arabia, and Scythia, horses contributed to economic prosperity and played a part in technological advancement. Hyland also considers their presence in the Steppe, among the Hun tribes, in China, and among the early Celts. Her vivid account, which ranges from c. 1350 BC to c. 640 AD, will inform and entertain.
