Heroes with Hooves: Bokkie : Juliette Whelpton
This is the story of Bokkie, the legendary Basotho pony of General Koos de la Rey, told by the horse herself. 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.
“A beautiful and original tale, compassionately and sensitively told.” Professor Fransjohan Pretorius.
