About this book

Sara Wyche's Autobiography by the Horse is a unique read as it examines the history of horses through a combination of poetry, in particular the haiku, and original art. Equestrian history has not been presented in this way before, and Sara's new format provides an alternative way for animal lovers to understand the history of the horse.

For Sara, when 'early man' first domesticated animals, he did so, not only to secure a dependable source of food and clothing, but also to extend his capabilities as a human being. Some animals were docile, others were muscular, some were fleet footed, but arguably the horse helped most with human development. Sara shows how the horse elevated man and how, through myth and legend, man elevated the horse. Throughout history, the horse has helped plough a furrow for the seeds of human enterprise. Autobiography by the Horse tells this interesting story through pictures and verse.

This book will appeal to animal lovers, particularly those with an interest in horses and equestrian history. In addition, Autobiography by the Horse is also aimed at those who enjoy poetry and art. The structure of Sara's work is based on Nanao Sakaki's poem Autobiography and David W. Anthony's book The Horse, The Wheel, and Language.
