This text contains an account of the author's journey to the Syrian desert, in an attempt to obtain Arab mares and stallions. He hoped to gain horses of such pure-blood, that he could trace them as coming from the great Anezeh tribe of Bedouins. What follows is a fascinating and insightful tale of his journey, sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the Bedouin horses of Syria and of the exotic countries that he traveled through. The chapters of this book include: 'An Oregon Arab and What It Led To', 'Procuring the Iradé: and the Start for the Desert', 'The Sultan's Stables', 'The Sultan of Turkey', 'From Constantinople to Antioch', 'Antioch to Aleppo', 'Akmet Haffez and the War Mare', 'The War Mare Greets the Desert', and more. This antique text was originally published in 1909, and is proudly republished here complete with a new introduction on horse breeding and anatomy.
