9780963458100: The Annotated Quest: Homer Davenport & His Wonderful Arabian Horses: An annotated edition of My Quest of the Arabian Horse by Homer Davenport

In 1893, before there was even an Arabian Horse Registry, Homer Davenport saw his first real Arabian horses at the Chicago World's Fair. In 1906, Homer realized his boyhood dream of traveling to the desert and buying Arabians directly from the Bedouin horse breeding tribes. The Davenport importation provided one of the foundation bloodlines of American Arabian horse breeding. It is the privilege of the Davenport Arabian Horse Conservancy to salute the Davenport Arabian Horse and the people devoted to it by keeping this classic of Arabian horse literature in print so that future generations of Arabian horse enthusiasts can enjoy Davenport's information, presented in his individual and humorous style. Annotated by Charles and Jeanne Craver. Hardback, many rare photographs, some in color. Second printing. 329 pages with additional information, more photographs, lists of horses in appendix form, bibliography, index.
