Marguerite F Bayliss (1895 - ) wrote Bolinvar, originally published in two volumes, and then reprinted (with, apparently much of the racist material removed) by H Holt & Company. It Is the story of a family feud between two branches of the Bolinvar family, which takes the form of an equestrian rivalry across three continents. Ponydom’s review of the novel says: “Lock the doors, turn off the phone, and return to the days of daring cavaliers, dashing young ladies, fine bloodstock and those who love them all. This book is a horse lover's dream come true.”


Finding the book: relatively easy to find.
