About the Author

Hilda Nelson is Emeritus Professor of French Literature and Civilization at San Diego State University in Southern California. She received her PhD from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is the author of books and articles on romanticism, dada, and surrealism and translated Antoine de Pluvinel's classic on horsemanship, Le maneige Royal, and also authored Francois Baucher, The Man and His Method, both for J.A.Allen. In 1983-4 she spent part of her sabbatical at St Anthony's College, Oxford and spent many of her days at the Bodleian Library. She continues to visit England and France once or twice a year to pursue her studies. She makes ample use of the libraries of the Ecole Nationale d'Equitation, the Ecole de Cavalerie and the Musee de Saumur. The author takes dressage lessons both in England and the United States, and lives with her husband, horses, dogs and cats at Mount Laguna, California, in the midst of the Cleveland National Forest.
