The Wonder Book of Horses

James Baldwin knew how to tell a great historical story.  The author of Fifty Famous Stories Retold as well as numerous other historical readers for children, his greatest work might be The Horse Fair. 430+ pages of the historical accounts of horses, this book is a great addition to any history collection.

I am sharing the much shorter version here.  The Wonder Book of Horses is a condensed collection of some of the better stories meant to be used as a school reader.

Eighteen stories from history and myth are included in this book.  They include Bucephalus- the horse of Alexander the Great, Rakush and His Master, Rozinante- the steed of Don Quixote.
