In "Horse Nation" Martino writes about the equine heroes and the fallen, the defiant ones and the teachers & healers. There was Casey, the blood bay, who jumped a teenage girl over her mother's sports car as a rite of passage; Icy, a deep black mare, strong and independent, embodied the circle of life; and The Corinthian, a gray gelding,defined what it is to be a champion. Martino also writes of the horse people---riders, grooms, coaches, and students---who have walked and breathed the equine path like acolytes.
This book is reminiscent of "The Black Stallion," "Misty of Chincoteague," and James Herriot's books, yet written with the wisdom of a Native American storyteller, and the humor of Coyote the trickster. Martino's characters, their adventures, and the slices of equine life are as engaging as a good story around a campfire. "Library Journal" describes Martino's stories as "work reminiscent of Joy Adamson's 'Born Free,' Martino is a poet and short story writer..."
