What books on frontier horses would you recommend?

Koen Kop
Berlin, Germany

I highly recommend books by Will James, including Smoky, Lone Cowboy, Horses I’ve Known and Scorpion. Some of his books have been made into movies.

Marshall Trimble is Arizona’s official historian and vice president of the Wild West History Association. His latest book is Arizona Outlaws and Lawmen; The History Press, 2015. If you have a question, write: Ask the Marshall, P.O. Box 8008, Cave Creek, AZ 85327 or email him at marshall.trimble@scottsdalecc.edu.
