There was no keeping him in the pasture, and when the hounds gave tongue, Silver thought it was his signal to join the hunt...this is a real out-door book, with the fun of riding, of a Pony Club and of a Drag Hunt. It is full of the good, straight horse talk and fine picturess of horses that Paul Brown's readers have come to expect and love. At the end of the story, Silver Heels shows what he can do". Paul Brown (1893-1958) was a prolific illustrator and artist of equestrian sports and country life. As a young child he began drawing horses and equestrian sports. Although he never owned a horse, he was a fan of horse sports, attending hunt race meetings, polo matches, racetracks and horse shows. He studied everything about horses and became an expert at portraying them. He is especially known for his gift to accurately depict horses in motion. During his career, he wrote and illustrated 32 books, illustrationg another 100 byother authors. In addition to books, his works appeared in many periodicals.
