Once our most indispensable companions, horses were for millennia essential in helping build our cities, farms, and industries. But during the 20th century, in an increasingly mechanized society, they began to disappear from human history. In this illustrated tribute, Ulrich Raulff draws from history, literature, and mythology to chronicle the dramatic story of the horse, thoroughly examining how they've been muses and brothers in arms, neglected and sacrificed in war yet memorialized in paintings, sculpture, and novels—and ultimately marginalized on racetracks and in pony clubs.
