Elaine Walker

Horse

€ 19.95

From Pegasus to Black Beauty or from Trigger to Shadowfax in Lord aj the Riiigs, horses have held a unique place in human society and in our imagination. In Horst Elaine Walker tackles the long and multifaceted history of an animal valued for both its beauty and usefulness. From the wild steppes of Mongolia to the American plains, a rich and complex natural history is chronicled, from wild horses to the domesticated species that once played a central role in daily life as a means of transportation, an instrument of war, and as a source of labour.

This book chaits how the long-standing connection between people and horses is reflected in cultures around the world - and what the implications behind such close interaction have been for both us and them. It also tracés the centrality of the horse in art, entertainment and literature, from the rich global traditions of horse-racing and equestrianism to Wild West shows and television classics such as Follyfoot, and the continuing role of the horse in modern society.

Elaine Walker lectures in English and Creative Writing for the University of Wales and the Open College of the Arts.
