How Captain Johnson brought the horse from Treport is a tale reproduced from ‘’Tales and Ballards from Wearside’’ by John Green, 1897. Much of the story is told in local dialect and is a wonderful picture of wily maritime characters. The book is sewn as a single section, traditionally bound volume including a reproduction period map as end papers and simple hand drawn illustrations by the artist.
