HOOFBEATS: Horse Poems.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Greenwillow Books, (2004.). SIGNED first edition - Poems for older children (and adults) - "an amazing journey through 65 million years of horse history honoring the beloved horse. These 104 poems are by turns heartbreaking, astonishing and funny. But what resounds most in every stanza -- and in every hoofbeat -- is our love for these powerful, elegant, loyal creatures." Laid in is a SIGNED typed letter from the author (12 paragraphs, 2 pages) dated in July the year before publication in which she mentions that "I can't wait until March to hear your reaction. This is a radical departure for me; it's as exciting as a first book, which is saying something after 24 or so." Glossary, bibliography. 208 pp.
Condition: Very good in illustrated wrappers (a little wear to the covers), letter is fine, with one fold. .
