The 18 stories in this collection represent the imaginations of writers renowned for their horse tales, such as James Herriot, Anna Sewell, and Enid Bagnold, as well as other great authors including Charles Dickens, Mark Twain and Rudyard Kipling, who offer their own unique visions and experiences with the noblest of creatures.
BEST HORSE STORIES is a diverse collection of tales about all different breeds. You'll root for Kipling's The Maltese Cat, an appropriately uncommon name for a polo pony who inspires his team of underdogs in the heat of a match. How Mr. Pickwick Undertook to Drive and Mr. Winkle to Ride shares—in pure Dickensian style and humor—the tale of "four friends and their four-footed companion," and their lesson in how difficult it can be to get to your destination if your horse doesn't want to take you. And Herriot's An Expensive Operation reevaluates who is the higher and who the lower of beasts when a veterinarian has to deal with a beautiful and noble horse for a patient, but a client who's as stubborn as a mule.
Illustrated with vivid line drawings, BEST HORSE STORIES is a celebration of this graceful animal that will delight horsepeople and animal lovers alike.
