Description


Despite their large size and power, Clydesdale horses are gentle giants deeply revered by many. Sadly though, they're living on the edge of extinction. Galloping from Scotland to Canada: The Story of SantaClyde tells the tale of the Clydesdales' fascinating journey from Scotland to Canada. The book transports readers to bygone events such as the Roman invasion of Scotland, the English invasion by Edward I, the heroic efforts of the horses during World Wars I and II, and the fascinating story of one horse's journey from Scotland to Canada-all told through the eyes of one special horse who became SantaClyde.

The book is largely set in Toronto in the 1960s where Clyde has declined from a horse of stature to one confined in an animal shelter and in search of a new owner. Although he is part of a dying breed, Clyde knows to never give up. His courage and persistence triumph to change his destiny from a trip to the glue factory to one of important service to children.

Galloping from Scotland to Canada: The Story of SantaClyde is a colourful tale that brings the little-known history of this breed of horse to young readers, aged twelve to seventeen.
