The Fire Horse: A Historic Look at Horses and Firefighting by Gloria Austin
Of all the discussions about working horses, the fire department horse always brings up stories of heroic horses and the love the firemen had for them. The fire horse's history was not very long. However, the history of horse-drawn fire engines is rich with the greatness of the horse. Whether it be a horse-drawn fire pumper or a horse-drawn fire wagon, the horse was always the hero who delivered the firemen and equipment where they needed to be. If you love the horse-drawn fire truck pictures or the great stories of the horse-drawn fire engine history, you will want this book. From the beginning of the horse as a firefighter to the last horse-drawn fire engine, this book tells you the real story of the firehorse.
