Wild horses have roamed the shores of Assateague Island for centuries. As their population increases, however, they risk damaging the delicate area's ecosystem and being taken off the island. Dr. Ron Keiper and Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick have each made these wild horses their lives' work.
Descriptive prose, solid science, and never-before-seen images of the reclusive Assateague herds reveal their fierce and untamed beauty.
