Hoofprints: Horse Poems

'“Haas’s considerable knowledge, love of, and respect for horses is clearly evident in this collection of 104 poems.” —School Library Journal “In sophisticated poetry, [Haas] explores horse history, imagining scenes of prehistoric ancestors, the first pairing of horse and rider, and onward through time and across continents. . . . A unique, memorable collection.” —Booklist “The language is precise, careful, and true; the history multifaceted as history should be. . . . Ambitious, accomplished, adventuresome.” —Kirkus Reviews “This book of free verse poems takes on the challenging task of telling the story of the history of horse and man and succeeds beautifully. . . . The structure of each short poem is spare but lyrical, with a wonderful rhythm reminiscent of the rocking motion of a rider on horseback.” —Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) “Sure to appeal to the horse lover, this collection of poems will also be appreciated for its historical content. . . . No matter what the subject, Haas’ poems paint vivid pictures and contain musical rhythms. A horse lover will gallop through this book, while a poetry lover may take the landscape of these poems at a gentle canter.” —Children’s Literature'
