Heartbeat for Horses by Laura Chester & Donna Demari

Looking for a great gift for a girl who loves horses? This collection of writing and photography was created for especially for teenagers who are horse crazy. Included are excerpts from a wide variety of stories, including well-known books like King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry and Black Beauty, as well as lesser known titles like The Good Master by Kate Seredy. Mixed in are poems, or parts of poems, by D. H. Lawrence, Ted Hughes, Jim Harrison, and others. While the text offers a wonderfully wide range of reading, it is the awe-inspiring photographs of horses in action, horses with girls, and horses grazing in sweet meadows that will attract—and impress—most readers. Whether your teen competes in the rodeo or likes to attend horse shows, she will find a wealth of reading and dreaming in this rich book.
