The large, richly illustrated story of an outstanding Quarter Horse stallion and the horsemen who have carried on the legacy of breeding outstanding performance horses.
Asbury Schell owned Driftwood, then known as Speedy, using him to rope calves, team rope, steer rope and bulldog. Catherine and Chaning Peake convinced Schell to let them breed seven mares to the stallion in 1941 and the next year the Peakes acquired Driftwood for $1,500.
Driftwood offspring were known for their calm nature, athletic ability and excelled in the rodeo arena. Driftwood was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2006.
