This collection takes us on a journey through the ages, focusing on the special relationship that exists between humans and horses. the first story, set six thousand years ago in the Ukraine, is the touching tale of a young girl who forms a close bond with a pony that she rears from a foal. then we travel to ancient Greece and witness the cruelties of slavery; we experience the terror of the half-million horses in Genghis Khan’s army; we wander through the glades of Arthurian England; and in twentieth-century Australia we meet a young Aboriginal boy and the wild stallion he tames. the final story is set in the Australia of the 1950’s where the long working partnership between people and horses is finally coming to an end. these heart-warming stories are full of love and life; it is a collection that few readers will be able to resist.
