Overview

Here is a book of horse stories to discover, buy and cherish. For these tales were penned by the great “Don Roberto” Cunninghame Graham and they are not to be picked up and looked at lightly. For equestrian treasures such as these are rare indeed. Don Roberto was always a horseman ! He stepped into the saddle as a small child and was riding until he died in 1936. “Tales of Horsemen” contains ten of the most beautifully written equestrian stories ever set to paper, collected during the roaming life of this talented horse-borne scribe. The stories gallop across the whole wide world, taking the reader on a ride from the hot pampas of Argentina to the cold reaches of Iceland. The book culminates with Don Roberto’s most famous equestrian tale, “Tschiffely’s Ride.” This account of the Swiss Long Rider, and his Criollo horses Mancha and Gato, helped inspire the birth of modern equestrian travel and earned Don Roberto a place in the Valhalla of Long Rider heroes. So saddle up and ride along through the pages of this lovely book, edited and illustrated by Alexander Maitland, and carrying a special Foreword by Don Roberto’s great-niece, Jean Cunninghame Graham.

Ride.
