Comments The Tale of Two Horses: A 10,000 Mile Journey as Told by the Horses

    While very definitely aimed at children, complete with occasionally distracting passages that stop to explain potentially unfamiliar words or concepts, this was a vivid adventure and certainly the most fun perspective from which to read the journey. It made me very excited to tackle the "grown up" version in more detail now that I have a clear outline of the trip.

    This is a beautiful book. Simply written for children but educational and emotional. One of my favourite books of all time.

    This is an edited addition of Tschiffley's book, TSCHIFFELY'S RIDE. Some of the same tales were re-told and there were incidents not in the first book. This book was written for children and has a very different tone. It is a good story and if one did not wish to read the long version on the ride from Buenos Aires to New York this is a book for you.
