"General Patton Rescues the Horses",
is told by a rescued Polish Arabian Stallion, Witez II. Available in large print.
Witez II, one of the most outstanding and magnificent Polish Arabian stallions ever,
tells the true story of how General George S. Patton and Colonel Charles H. Reed saved
hundreds of noble horses from being slaughtered and eaten by the Russian Red Army near the
end of the Second World War. Witez II actually lived the story, who better to tell it.
General Patton and Colonel Reed, both avid lifelong horse lovers, combined talents to capture
and rescue the best-of-the-best breeding stock the Third Reich had gathered at Hostau Stud Farm
in Czechoslovakia 1936-45, including hundreds of Lipizzans and Arabians.
For horse lovers, this story is epic
and could have been devastating for both breeds had it played out differently.
"ME & CHIEF SITTING BULL" relates to
the last 20 years of Sitting Bull's life—as told by his horse, Blackie. Available in large print.
Based on true historical events, this novel covers the years 1870-1890. During these years as
Chief and Holy Man of the Lakota Sioux, Sitting Bull fought for, advised, counseled and
represented his people, trying to enable them to live free on the nothern plains as they had
always done, all while the government declared them "hostiles" and sent military to round them
up and contain them to living on designated reservations.
Sitting Bull and Blackie were involved in the Battle on the Rosebud, present during Custer's
defeat, fled to Canada, surrendered to the U.S. military, took part in Buffalo Bill's Wild West
shows, and raised horses from his home on the Grand River in South Dakota until his untimely murder.
is a memoir-type novel based on a true story
A divorced, fortyish business woman fulfills her lifelong dreams by working as a horse wrangler and
trail guide at a dude ranch in Wyoming. Her adventures take her from rodeos, endurance races and pack
trips over the Continental Divide into Yellowstone National Park to training wild mustangs in Montana
and wrangling horse-pack trips into the Shoshone-Teton National Forests.
This book is an enjoyable read for any horse lover or fan of the West.
"The DAYES of Wyoming" is an historical novel
featuring horse trainer, Bertha and mountain man, Charie Daye. The stories take place during
the early 1800s to early 1900s in nothern Wyoming, from
Johnson County, east of the Bighorns, to Yellowstone, west of the Continental Divide.
This was an exciting time of change in Wyoming: Wyoming Territory
was admitted into the Union; the end of the trappers' rendezvous
precipitated a decline in the fur trade and mountain men; Wyoming's
Civil War took place east of the Bighorns in Johnson County; with
Yellowstone recently declared a national park, Cody became a thriving
community as its eastern entrance; and work began on the Shoshone Dam,
later known as the Buffalo Bill Dam and Reservoir. Hundreds of thousands
of bison no longer dotted the Wyoming landscape and their disappearance
was soon followed by the extinction of wolves and severely diminished
herds of wild mustangs.
Bertha and Charlie Daye experienced it all, and more . . . from guiding eastern guests into remote mountain paradises,
rounding up wild horses, riding in thriilling overland horse races, adopting children who traveled west
on one of the famous Orphan Trains and the ensuing adjustments they would all have to make if they
were to become a family.
