With photographs of everything from Roy Rogers and his fabulous Palomino to the intrepid Seabiscuit, from great jumpers to Vienna’s Lippizaners, from Arabian stallions to thoroughbred mares and their foals, from rodeos and wild Mustangs to ponies and their children, The Big Book of Horses is sure to warm the hearts of horse lovers everywhere. This 384-page tome contains more than 230 images—printed in duotone—taken by such passionate horse photographers as Mark J. Barrett, Bob Langrish, and Alain Laurioux.

C.’s own whimsical horse drawings and by excerpts—both literary and personal—from the works of such diverse writers as Leo Tolstoy, Cormac McCarthy, and others, and from stories and anecdotes by horse owners and aficionados. From the horse with a double-sized heart to Triple Crown champions, from General Lee’s Traveller to Buffalo Bill’s Charlie, The Big Book of Horses is filled with the remarkable, the famous, the beautiful and the bold. It’s a fitting tribute to our mythic equine friends.

But far to the west, two young Cro-Magnon brothers have begun a journey. One of them is Jondalar, whose destiny is bound inextricably with Ayla's. Jean Auel's imaginative reconstruction of pre-historic life, rich in detail of language, culture, myth and ritual, has become a set text in schools and colleges around the world.
