Rush, William Marshall

About the author

William Marshall Rush (b.1887) also wrote under the pseudonym Mark Layton. He wrote several books on ranching and on animals. It may well be that there’s horse content in some I haven’t included on this page. If you can help, please contact me.

Finding the books
Though not necessarily common, the books are reasonably priced when they do turn up.
