Southwestern Historical Quarterly
The Nez Perce War of 1877 caused many of the fine Appaloosas
to be drowned or killed. Others were captured and sold to whites
over the country. But the Appaloosa continued in demand as a
circus mount, and the first all-Appaloosa horse show was held in
Idaho in 1948. At the present time thirty Appaloosa horse clubs
have more than 3,ooo members, and more than 25,ooo Appaloosa
horses are registered.
The interest of the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art in
Fort Worth led to an exhibit of Appaloosa art there early in 1963
and to the commissioning of this sumptuous book. Published by
the University of Texas Press for the museum, the volume was
printed by the Meriden Gravure Company in Connecticut and
bound by the Universal Bookbindery in San Antonio. An un-
usual blending of text, illustrations, and printing enables it to
achieve a high peak in bookmaking. Horse lovers and art stu-
dents will be equally proud to own a copy.
