Heroes with Hooves: Fleur : Juliette Whelpton
“Saddle up! Saddle up! Jump onto your horse, tighten the reins and gallop with me on a historical adventure. You’ll meet brave men, observant scouts, courageous riders and four-hooved heroes.”
This is the story of Fleur, General Christiaan de Wet’s faithful steed, told straight from the horse’s mouth.
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.
