Today, it is universally recognized that the Arabian horse is a horse with certain unique characteristics. What is less well known is the history of the Arabian horse and its fight to retain its purity and its very survival. In this book the autthor has set out to record the story from pre-biblical times to the present day. It is a record of pilgrimage which began in the desert. Many extracts from contemporary diaries and traveller’s accounts, including those of Lady Ann Blunt and her husband Wilfrid Scawen Blunt—to when the world owes a debt than can never be repaid for the survial and preservation of the Arabian breed.

Margaret Greely spent the formative years of her life in Northern India where she was born. Horses were part of her life; at first, as the accepted and most desirable means of transport. Later, when she was allowed to make her own choice, they were her most treasured possessions, valued as much for their beauty as for their performance. In 1942, when many stued were forced to reduce their stock, she bought her first pure Arabian of Hanstead bloodlines and thus established Well House Stud. Miss Greely was well known throughout the Arabain horse world and an authority on many aspects of the breed until her death at 103 years old in December 2000.
