From the time people first rode horses, these amazing creatures have changed the way humans live, travel, fight, work, and play. In her captivating, storytelling style, author Elizabeth MacLeod brings to life six of the most exciting examples of how horses have influenced the course of civilization.
Read about Bucephalus, the valiant horse that led Alexander the Great fearlessly into battle; the mighty Mustangs used by the Native peoples to hunt buffalo; the hard-working pit ponies that helped fuel the Industrial Revolution, and Sybil Ludington’s horse, Star, an unsung hero of the Revolutionary War.
Horses hold a natural fascination for many young people. What better way to introduce them to world history than through the stories of these magnificent animals.
