Top eight books about horses

Christian Science Monitor contributor Megan Wasson came up with a list of eight great books about horses.

One title on the list:
Horse Heaven, by Jane Smiley

Jane Smiley describes the world of horse-racing in almost anthropological detail. She sheds light on a world full of intrigue, danger, risk, and gambling, and while the people may be fascinating enough, it is her loving description of the horses that makes this book a keeper. You'll be cheering for every horse and will never watch a horse race in the same way again.
Read about the other books on the list.
