Mickey, the Horse That Volunteered
McGraw Hill, New York, 1945, 62 pp, illus Bill Crawford
Mickey was a real horse: he volunteered for the Troop A of the US Cavalry when Indians in Arizona
were on the warpath. Mickey wasn’t much like the usual elegant cavalry horse. A scrawny strawberry
roan, he may not have had looks, but he did have courage. When the bugle blew, Mickey wanted to
be in the front line.

McGraw Hill, New York, 1948, 63 pp, illus Bill Crawford
This is the sequel to Mickey the Horse That Volunteered, and is taken from a story told by
Captain Ansel O'Banion, who knew Mickey in the Philippines
