«Двенадцать спящих дев. Старинная повесть в двух балладах» - произведение русского поэта, одного из основоположников романтизма в русской поэзии В. А. Жуковского (1783 – 1852). ***Баллада — открытие и любимый жанр Жуковского, она слилась с его именем, стала почти личным достоянием поэта, хотя писали баллады и до него и…

Overcoming battered limbs, a steed hell-bent on bolting, and an encounter with the teeth of one very savage dog, Polly cantered through Andean vineyards and galloped beneath snow-capped Patagonian peaks. She survived a hair-raising game of polo and a back-breaking day herding cattle.

Taking a break from riding, she delved into Argentina's tumultuous history: the Europeans' first terrifying acquaintances with the native 'giants'; the sanguinary demise of the early missionaries; and the gruesome drama of Evita's wandering corpse.

On a Hoof and Prayer is the stampeding story of Polly's journey from timorous equestrian novice to wildly whooping cowgirl. It's a tale of ponies, painkillers and peregrinations - not just around present-day Argentina, but also into the country's glorious and turbulent past.
