Heroes with Hooves: Dapper : Juliette Whelpton
This is Dapper’s story and the third book in the Heroes with Hooves series. Just as Fleur and Bokkie told their own stories of the events of the Anglo-Boer War, this book is narrated by General Louis Botha’s magnificent Boerperd, Dapper.
The series is dedicated to all the unsung horse heroes of the war in which 500 000 of them died. It is historically accurate and perfect for readers from 9 to 99.
Step into the hoof tracks left by Dapper, Malperd, Rooibok, Generaal, and the other heroes, and share with us the poems and songs and a wealth of interesting facts woven into the fabric of our past.
