by Margaret DavidsonTrue Stories for Horse Lovers
Margaret Davidson is a wonderful storyteller.Though Ms. Davidson is better known for her biographies, which are excellent, she applies the talent of her pen to explain the origin of five equine breeds.We learn how the Morgan horse got its name (through an interesting man by the name of Justin Morgan), the Pacing White Mustang - the horse with a wild spirit that could not be tamed, the story of Misty - made famous by Marguerite Henry in her classic novels, a donkey named Brighty (also by Marguerite Henry), and the story of clever Hans.The equines in this book actually lived; in most cases, they started in beloved classics.This little book is a fine introduction to these wonderful characters.
