Quotes: Born in the Saddle

Even the nomads most favored by circumstances, those whom regular availability of summer and winter grazing at fixed locations allows to practice transhumance, are tougher by far then the settled farmer. The ancient nomads of the arid steepe, where tribe had to compete against tribe for what scraps of grazing there were, must have been among the toughest people in all creation
John Keegan, A History of Warfare
