Description

Wild horses are symbols of strength, adventure and freedom. But did you know that the ones in North America are descended from tame animals that arrived with the explorers and settlers? Wild horses can walk within an hour of their birth, sleep standing up, and grow shaggy hair to keep warm in winter. They also love to buck and play, so kick up your heels and discover these enchanting creatures.

Includes a table of contents, index, sidebars, and full of extraordinary photography throughout.
