Description : Saul Indian Horse has hit bottom. His last binge almost killed him, and now he's a reluctant resident in a treatment centre for alcoholics, surrounded by people he's sure will never understand him. But Saul wants peace, and he grudgingly comes to see that he'll find it only through telling his story. With him, readers embark on a journey back through the life he's led as a northern Ojibway, with all its joys and sorrows. With compassion and insight, author Richard Wagamese traces through his fictional characters the decline of a culture and a cultural way. For Saul, taken forcibly from the land and his family when he's sent to residential school, salvation comes for a while through his incredible gifts as a hockey player. But in the harsh realities of 1960s Canada, he battles obdurate racism and the spirit-destroying effects of cultural alienation and displacement. Indian Horse unfolds against the bleak loveliness of northern Ontario, all rock, marsh, bog and cedar. Wagamese writes with a spare beauty, penetrating the heart of a remarkable Ojibway man.

Description : Spoor of an Indian Horse is the unforgettable story of Laxman, a lonely corporate professional, at a crucial juncture in his life, seeks to refuge in writing about his fairytale-like childhood full of serendipitous encounters, in the hope of finding the purpose of his existence. A boy in a southern Indian village with a buffalo to be taken care along with his school, leaves home at a dawn, after a series of debacles and dejections that come his way. Then follows his stint at the summit of a hill nearby the village, at White Horse Dargah — with a dying Sufi saint and an enchanting stallion. He remains obscured, behind the curtains in sanctum and helps the needy pilgrims with his prodigious talent in number patterns. After few days, eyes of a gang of gamblers fall on the wonder boy. What happens after that? Laxman in his present life struggles — to cope up with his alienated life, and to escape the strained liaison with his neighbour woman. The process of tracing his own footprints I.e self-reflection ignites his soul to transform his present life as well. He finds the lost thread of the purpose of his life and evolves into a complete man, by churning through his memories. The story that begins as an individual’s ends as that of a satisfying Indian narrative. It is a skilfully interwoven tale with the multifarious themes such as repercussions of globalization both at individual and societal levels, economic imbalance, cultural conflicts, illiteracy, migratory chaos, communal amalgamation, corporate alienation and so on. Spoor... is also an awe-inspiring story of success and idealism of an unlikely boy from a remote village of southern India.

Description : Excerpt from Indian Horse Notes: An Epitome of Useful Information, Arranged for Ready Reference on Emergencies Specially Adapted for Officers and Country Residents; All the Technical Terms Explained and Simplest Remedies Selected A third edition containing additional (and I trust valuable) information has been prepared, as the second was exhausted, though it was very large. This book was originally only intended for use in India, but an unexpected demand for it has been made in England and Australia, and also by Officers of the United States Cavalry, which is very gratifying to me.

Description : This carefully documented account brings to life the hardy Indian pony—possessing almost unbelievable speed and endurance that allowed its rider to run down the fastest buffalo or leave his cavalrymen pursuers far behind. It is the story of American Indians and their relationship to the animals that broadened their horizons, and a historical record of one of the most turbulent and fascinating eras of American frontier history.
