Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Beginning with an introduction to the earliest known ancestors of horses, this broad overview goes on to profile the different types of wild horses found across the globe today. It investigates where and how each may have evolved, the physical and social characteristics that set them apart, and ways that conservationists are working to help preserve these horses in their natural habitats. The distinction between the only true wild horse remaining (the Przewalski) and other types that at one point in their genealogical history were domesticated but then released into the wild can be confusing, but Halls addresses it succinctly. Throughout, full-color photographs provide an eyeful for horse lovers and help to demarcate the differences and similarities among the species and subspecies. A bibliography is included for those looking to delve deeper; there's also listings of places to travel to see some of these animals in their native habitats and ways to help ensure their survival. A handsome choice for an undercovered topic.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2008 Booklist"
