From the Back Cover:

The multi-horse hitch pulling big wagons loaded with supplies was a common scene in American history in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Cities bustled with horse-drawn wagons loaded with goods, moving them from ships and railways to warehouses and businesses or carrying loads overland from city to city. Some of the wagons were works of art as companies had them painted to promote their businesses. As the horses moved goods from one location to another they also carried moving advertisements for attracting customers along their routes.Today you can still see these magnificent horses pulling beautiful wagons that are also moving billboards, but usually during parades or as an exhibition at festivals and horse shows. The famous Budweiser Team is just one of many hitches used to promote products today. They have been so successful that the Clydesdale is often referred to as the Budweiser Horse.
– from The Book of Draft Horses

Synopsis:

Long before tractors and trucks there were heavy horses. These gentle but immensely powerful creatures performed the weighty work of pulling wagons, ploughing fields, and hauling cargo. For some, the advent of the engine didn't mean an end to the heavy horse. The "Book of Draft Horses" is a genuine celebration of these magnificent creatures at work and play today. It melds the timeless allure of horses with a sense of history, as well as being a practical handbook on breeding, health, training, competition, and working horse breeds. With 60 photographs that perfectly complement the descriptive narrative, this is a must-have volume for anyone interested in these magnificent beasts from a bygone era.
