Maryland Author Publishes Collection of Horse Stories

Sykesville, Maryland – September 15, 2006 – Fred Glueckstein, a resident of Maryland, has published a collection of stories titled Of Men, Women and Horses about one of history’s most enduring relationships; those of men, women and, the most noble of animals, horses.

“Horses are magnificent creatures,” said Fred Glueckstein, “They have played an important role throughout history and in the lives of people from all walks of life. These stories are a special tribute to the bond that men and women – artists, writers, soldiers, celebrities – have had with horses: relationships that have inspired their lives, given them pleasure, and provided solace during difficult times. Stories of some remarkable champion Thoroughbred race horses and their owners, trainers, and jockeys are also told.”

The collection includes the touching and inspiring true stories of Rosa Bonheur and The Horse Fair (1853); Capt. Myles Keogh and Comanche (1876); Anna Sewell and Black Beauty (1877); Richard Stone Reeves and War Admiral (1937); Jacqueline Bouvier (Kennedy) and Danseuse (1940); Lt. Ed Ramsey and Bryn Awryn (1942); Gen. George S. Patton and the Lipizzaners (1945); Marguerite Henry and Misty of Chincoteague (1947); Sir Winston S. Churchill and Colonist II (1949); Dick Francis and Devon Loch (1956); Sir Alfred J. Munnings: An Artist’s Life (1959), and the champion Thoroughbred race horses Exterminator (1918), Black Gold (1924), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), and Assault (1946).

In celebration of the publication of Of Men, Women and Horses, Fred will be the guest of honor at a reception and book signing during the Town of Leesburg, Virginia's “First Friday Event” from 5 to 9 pm on Friday evening, December 1, 2006 at “All the King's Horses” Exquisite Equine Art & Whimsical Gifts .
