Read full description of the books:



Tolkien once wrote of man's deep desire to learn the languages of beasts. The Horsemen of the Word, whose decendants became known in the New World as "horse whisperers" came very close to that ideal with one of the animals most closely linked to societies' mobility and prosperity. Their powers often confused with witchcraft, holders of the Horseman's Word were treated with wary respect in Scotland, Ireland and south-east England.

Despite the somewhat sensationalist title, Lyon's work is fascinating in its matter-of-factness. The author is an agricultural vet who grew up on a Lanarkshire farm, and deftly examines why the Horsemen's potions, ointments and wardings worked, as well as analysing their place in rural society. A fascinating book, recommended to anyone writing about 19th-century Scotland and/or horse whisperers.
