Horse Power: How Horses Changed the World
Guess what this book is about? It’s called Horse Power: How Horses Changed the World by Jennifer Thermes and it’s all about horses! It talks about the whole time line of horses. There are a lot of horses in the world, lots that I’ve never heard of. For example, the Chinese Guoxia or the Akhal-teke (from Turkmenistan). Horses were used long before the medieval times, in deserts and in mountains too. And also people used to feed apples to horses, most days you don’t usually see that around. Horses can be used for all kinds of things, like horse races. Horses could be used to get bison. We don’t use horses as much now. The book didn’t talk about unicorns, but that’s okay. In the Industrial Age, trains were invented and horses were needed to transport coal to the trains. If horses weren’t there, they’d have to have gotten coal by hand! This book is really good for learning about horses and all the horses in the world and how they’ve been used through history. Horses are awesome!
