Editor's Prologue reports Homer Davenport was an able journalist and political cartoonist and horse enthusiast. Mr. Davenport became friends with Theodore Roosevelt before his presidency, both men being excellent horsemen. In wanting to acquire Arabian horses, Roosevelt later, as Presdent, supported by letter requesting Davenport be allowed to import some Arabian horses from Turkey to the United States. The expedition was privately funded the horses were to be used to establish a cavalry stud for the United States. That plan was never approved so the imported Arabian horses were allowed to be used for private purposes. The Davenport Desert Arabian Stud - the only direct importation from the Anezeh tribe ever made to America. Included is a portrait of Sheikh Achmet Haffez the diplomatic ruler of the Anezeh Bedouins and the man who made possible the great success Homer Davenport had with his Arabians.
