The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss

OFind in catalogur local author (Portland), Molly Gloss tells the tale of a young woman who breaks horses in Oregon, in the early parts of the of the twentieth century. The woman, Martha Lessen, is bringing forth a new gentler way of breaking horses while many of the male broncobusters are off at war. She seems to be quite successful at it. The story tells of the hard lives lived on the land in those times. It reveals connections made between folks thrown together in the community and a deep sense of horse love. Highly recommended.
