The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have th em to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

The Sound of Hoofbeats
selected by Deborah Stevenson

Those of us to whom libraries were divided into horse books and other books don't find quite the riches of days gone by; successors to classic equestrian authors such as Dorothy Lyons, Patsey Gray, and Marguerite Henry are few and far between. There is more to literary equestrian life than The Saddle Club nonetheless, and I've collected here quite a few barnworthy entries from the last decade ranging from photoessays (a format particularly gifted with good horse books lately) to picturebooks to historical fiction. Riders up!
