Description

The feral cousins of well-known domesticated breeds, wild horses live on the margins of human habitation, whether that be the Eurasian steppe, the wide open ranges of Utah, or the wetlands of the Carmague in southern France. Divided by continent, Wild Horses celebrates these last untamed examples of an animal species that has served humankind so well over many millennia. Learn about Przewalski’s horse, a breed with a 20,000-year lineage that runs wild today on the grasslands of Hungary; find out about the hardy little Dartmoor ponies, which were developed in rural Devon, England, as working animals by tin miners and now live in a semi-feral state; discover the Turkmene, an Oriental horse from the wastes of the Turkoman desert that can trace its history back to Genghis Khan and the Mongol invasion of Eurasia; and marvel at the Namib Desert horse, thought to be the only feral horse living in Africa, and which has evolved to survive up to 72 hours without water in the dry desert conditions. With detailed captions explaining the origins, habitat and behaviour of these noble creatures, Wild Horses provides a vivid pictorial introduction in 150 brilliant photographs.
