1914 : riding into war, by Susan Brocker (1961-)
This book is about Billy Bowman, a Kiwi farmer who joins up to the Wellington Mounted Rifles with his faithful horse Tui and his friend Jack. They become ‘friends’ with Sam, a bush worker who is nicknamed Chopper and who owns Trojan, a fairly grumpy horse. I think anyone who enjoys war stories would like this book.
