Vienna, Austria, 1938
Maestoso Petra is a world-famous Lipizzaner stallion. He has spent years in the Spanish Riding School, training to perform the complex airs above the ground that only Lipizzaner can accomplish. But when World War II breaks out in Europe, he learns to think less about performing and more about survival. Here is Maestoso Petra’s story . . . in his own words.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
I love this book along with all of the other Horse Diaries books in the series. I think there is a lesson we can all learn from this series, horse-lover or not. :-D
