From the Back Cover
This is the story of Confederate warhorses, whose breeds descend from English nobility, and the men they served. Southerners were long accustomed to the equestrian way of life, and the breeds of horses they used were as diverse as they were necessary.In the rural landscape of the Old South, travel and transport would have been impossible without the right steed. The warhorses and mules, who carried on through starvation and disease, were vital to the Confederate soldier. Read about such famous horses as Robert E. Lee’s Traveller and the many horses of Nathan Bedford Forrest, and come to know these horses as their masters did.

Having lived almost her entire life in Colorado, she saw her first Civil War battlefield when visiting Gettysburg. The trip left a lasting impression on her, inspiring her to write this book.
