The Studhorse Man by Robert Kroetsch
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Hazard Lepage, the last of the studhorse men, sets out to breed his rare blue stallion, Poseidon. A trickster, a lusty peddler, and a wayward knight, the antics of this hero are only outmatched by those of the narrator, a maniacal, naked writer who works in his bathtub. Told with the ribald zeal of a Prairie beer parlour tall tale and the mythic magnitude of a Greek odyssey, this book is Robert Kroetsch's recharacterisation of the Canadian West upon his mythological return to Alberta.
