New book: I Am The Great Horse

i Am The Great Horse

The Gruaniad has a review of a new book by Katherine Roberts, I Am the Great Horse, which tells the story of Alexander the Great and Macedonian history through the eyes of the conqueror’s legendary horse Bucephalus. At 544 pages, it may be a bit ambitious for the average teen, but it sounds like a worthwhile read for anyone.

If you enjoy this sort of novel, you may also be interested in Traveller by Richard Adams (author of the classic Watership Down and The Plague Dogs); Publishers Weekly describes the book as “an ironic, revisionist view of the Civil War as seen by Robert E. Lee’s horse, Traveller.”
