Ben K. Green, a preeminent veterinarian, horse trader, and storyteller of the twentieth-century Southwest, traded, raised, treated, and used horses throughout his life. A native of Cumby, Texas, Green grew up in the north-central part of the state and completed his first horse trade when he was in the third grade. He studied veterinary medicine at Cornell University and did postgraduate work at the Royal College of Veterinary Medicine in England. Green traveled throughout the world raising, breeding, and trading horses, mules, and cattle, and gained international recognition as a world-class horse judge.
For many years, Green worked as a veterinarian in the Trans-Pecos region of Texas, where he began his research on the color of horses that culminated in this book. Green wrote several other best-selling books about his half-century of experience with horses, cattle, and people, including A Thousand Miles of Mustangin', Wild Cow Tales, The Village Horse Doctor, and Horse Conformation.
A legend among horse enthusiasts and readers worldwide, Green received awards from the Texas Institute of Letters and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame for contributions to the literature of the Southwest. He died in 1974 at the age of sixty-two.
