John W Chambers

John W Chambers (1933 - ) has written several children’s books, which vary from adventure stories ( Fire Island Forfeit) to Siamese cats (Fritzi’s Winter). He has written, as far as I am aware, one horse book, The Colonel and Me. Its heroine, Gussie, loathes the idea of learning to ride.


Finding the book: this book is easy to find in the USA. It was not printed in the UK.

The Colonel and Me

Atheneum, New York, 1985, 190 pp


Colonel Meslenko is a Tartar, and Gussie hates both him and the fact he is teaching her to ride.
This was not how she had seen the summer go at all - she had planned a lazy summer on the
beach and reading, and not having to learn to ride.
