Drum and Hoofbeats

by Robert D. Bolen, B.A.


"Drum and Hoofbeats" is a history of the horse coming to America from Northern Africa. It involves slavery and two rebellions.

Horses were in America early in time, but became extinct. The path of the horse via Spanish conquistadors was a long voyage to America by Cortez and Columbus.

The Comanche Indians played a role by transporting the horse north to what is now modern Idaho. "Drum and Hoofbeats" is a honest account of the horse reaching America.
