The Personality of the Horse, a book of essays and poetry and horse literature, is "The book for anyone who has ever loved a horse, admired a horse, ridden one, or dreamed about owning one."

First published in 1963, this is a 1983 reissue of the book. The stories and essays have intriguing titles that give insight about story, essay or poem's star. To name a few examples: "The Freedom Loving Horse," "The Compassionate horse," "The Dreaming Horse," "The Hard Working Horse," "The Joyous Horse."

The book includes some horse illustrations as well, but is primarily a collection of literature, with contributions from John Steinbeck, Mary O'Hara, Bret Harte, Walter van Tilburg Clark and "many others" who didn't make the dust jacket.

The book is in very good condition with a good dust jacket. The jacket has some small tears and the front flap of the jacket folds the wrong way (it just needs to rest right for a while). The binding is tight, the pages have some age-tanning. The book contains two sweet inscriptions. One is to "Susan with love from great grandma Charlotte" Christmas 1985. The other is "To Susie ... from Deborah" May 1989.

This book would be a great gift for a person who loves horses. Particularly if that person is named Susan (aka Susie.)

Book ships Media Mail within the United States, first class international elsewhere.
