Tidy third printing of the first edition exlib hardcover in illustrated 'Titan' buckram library binding showing a large drawing of the head of the leopard appaloosa 'Dragon'. Pocket and all pages present. Library stamps on edges of 96 page block. Call tag on backstrip. Tight bright offering without a dust wrapper. Again and again the two horses collided. Each time, the collision was more one-sided. Finally, the pounding stopped, the dust settled, and the old stallion moved slowly away. Dragon was master of the herd. So began Dragon's leadership of a herd of Mexican mustangs, the small wild horses that roam the mountains of Mexico. Year after year Dragon led his mares to good grazing, protected them from enemies, and fought off challengers to his rule. But one day he met an enemy he couldn't outwit or outrun, and his life as a captive began. It was a time of defeat, but in Dragon was the quality of adaptability and an unconquerable will to live. Insofar as the facts about his early life are known, this is the true story of Dragon. Captured in Mexico and brought to the United States, this small appaloosa stallion is one of the foundation sires of the Pony of the Americas breed. To scores of POA ponies, Dragon has passed on the courage, stamina and intelligence that made him a leader in the wild.
