About this title

Synopsis:

Discover the history of horses in America with this engaging survey of equine development from prehistoric to modern times. Recounted in simple language and illustrated with accurate drawings, the book chronicles the horse's New World origins and extinction as well as the animal's return with the conquistadors and its subsequent roles ― as farm and carriage horses, thoroughbreds, ponies, mules, and trained horses in the army, circus, and elsewhere.
Starting with tales of the Mustang, the Dawn Horse, and horses of the Ice Age, the book traces the path to the great horse age that powered the country's westward expansion by way of Conestoga wagons, prairie schooners, and stagecoaches. Profiles of renowned American horses include Dan Patch, Seabiscuit, Man O'War, and many others.

About the Author:

Dorothy Childs Hogner wrote several children's books on animals, conservation, and nature, many of which were illustrated by her husband, Nils.
