A Trot Down Memory Lane Aug 17, 2008
This book is fabulous. All my horse-crazy friends and I oohed and ahhed and squealed with delight as page after page brought great photos of all our horsey heros and heroines before our enchanted eyes. The text is well-written, informative and very entertaining. You couldn't do much better as a gift for a horse-loving baby-boomer who grew up with all these famous equines and their two-legged companions.
G. DiPego Aug 5, 2008
Petrine Day Mitchum's book is more than exciting and informative. It's a tribute to all those horses who carried all those actors, and sometimes even carried the movies, too. They are the heroes of this book, and she presents them as individuals of courage and intelligence who so often suffered to bring us our thrills, from Ben Hur's chariot race to John Wayne jumping his mount over a fence and waving his hat in farewell. So many of our top movie memories include these animals. It's time they received the attention and respect - and the thanks - that they deserve. Gerald DiPego, Santa Ynez, California
Best book EVER for horse and film lovers! Aug 4, 2008
This is one of the most well researched books I have ever owned. Not only is it beautifully written, the photographs are a delight. I cannot imagine anyone who loves movies not loving this book. It is a wonderful tribute to those responsible for the care and training of horses for film and for the great actors with whom they shared the big screen. This book is an absolute must for your collection!
