This is a second copy of this book, but I include it on a normal operating principle of including all numbered copies. Where that copy was #147 of 1050, this copy is #705. This copy has its own history, having been sold for $12 by Kentucky State Parks. The horse connection makes sense in that state! As I wrote of the earlier copy, this book offers six good fables, each with a pleasant black-and-white illustration. The fables touch on these lessons: that the person who creates freedom will be followed; that the person who does not do anything will be terrorized; that loving is not crowding; that, if one is silly about the things that do not matter, one will be able to be serious about the things that do; that it is better to sit on the fence talking over intentions than to lie at someone's feet hoping for the best; and that running is a gift of the free that should always be enjoyed and exercised. The last illustration-of mare and filly running-may be the best. I am delightfully surprised by this little book.
