The Quotable Horse Lover

by

The Quotable Horse Lover Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horses bring out the best in our kind; they inspire adoration and compassion. They act as both muse and catharsis for artists and writers of all centuries and genres. In the works of Homer, Aesop, Steinbeck, and Yeats, and in sources that range from the Bible and Dante's Inferno to Beryl Markham's West with the Night, references to horses abound. For such show-business personalities as Mr. Ed and Henny Youngman, horses are wonderful fodder. And politics, too, is rife with analogies to the horse, from the words of Winston Churchill to those of Governor Earl Long.

The Quotable Horse Lover is the perfect gift for all those who are crazy about these blessed beasts.

Synopsis:

All the most evocative words ever spoken, and recorded, about the horse.
