John W. Chambers

American author of children's novels. A few of these feature animals, and one is a horse story. This is a quirky tale about that unlikely heroine, a girl who does not like horses! As far as I know it is the only horsy book the author has written.

Horse & Pony Books:

SUMMARY: Gussie is looking forward to a lazy summer of reading and hanging out at the lake. So she is not happy when her mother engages a Russian colonel to teach her and her brother to ride. She is not interested in horses and she hates the bossy colonel. But eventually both horses and her instructor begin to grow on her somewhat...

Collector's Info:
Easy to find in the USA. Harder elsewhere, though cheap copies can be ordered from America via Amazon.
