Description
Beautiful Jim Key, an ugly duckling colt, became one of the most heralded and beloved heroes of the turn of the 20th century. Said to have intelligence similar to that of a human sixth-grader, Jim became a national celebrity by demonstrating abilities to read, write, spell, perform arithmetic, tell time, sort mail, and cite biblical passages. In this long-overdue double biography, Jim's story is coupled with that of his trainer and best friend William Key, a self-taught veterinarian, former slave, Civil War veteran, entrepreneur, and one of the most renowned horse whisperers of his time. He shunned all force in the training of horses, instead relying on kindness and patience, and literally revolutionized world opinion on the matter of animal intelligence.
