This charming book tells the life story of a heroic pony – an Indian pony that lived in the Southwest during the frontier Indian wars. First published in 1922, this is the Doubleday & Co edition from 1946 with the jacket image painted by non-other than the infamous Wesley Dennis. This edition has a historical forward introduction by Lieut.-General Nelson A. Miles who witnessed first-hand the Indian wars of the mid-late 1800s, as recorded too by the author Forrestine Hooker who was the daughter of General C.L. Cooper, known as a famed Indian fighter. With historic details she witnessed during this time as the background, this book offers a thoughtful tale of life on the plains taken from the little horse’s perspective. Hardcover, 191 pages, very good condition with some wear to the jacket – torn and curled edges. Inside is stamped with a previous owner name and hand-written note on the inside cover page.
