“In 5,500 years of domestication humans have transformed horses’ bodies into everything from buttons to a physical reincarnation from the mythical past of a nation. This is not a history of the horse, but it is a story of six ways in which we have recreated it, from Wildness to Culture, Power to Meat, Wealth to War.”
The Age of the Horse was published by Atlantic Books in the UK and by Grove Atlantic in the USA. Hara Shobo are working on a forthcoming Japanese translation.
