Tirades and threats. Hyperbole and deception. Living traditions and dead animals. The conflicts that rage around the wild horses of the Atlantic coast can be loud, confusing, and downright vicious. Wild horses have lived on these barrier islands for hundreds of years, and many people would like to see them remain. Horse advocates and horse detractors alike turn to research to support their claims, but often reach different conclusions from the same information. Bonnie Gruenberg, a healthcare professional and lifelong equestrian, spent two decades in the field observing wild horses and human behavior toward them. Engaging the reader at every turn of the page, Bonnie Gruenberg frequently breaks new ground as she challenges assumptions, interprets historical records and genetic studies, and separates fact from myth. She weaves a story of ancient origins and current events, hard science and fiery passion. She has included more than 250 of her own arresting images, as well as historical photographs and maps. The result is the most comprehensive and factual reference on the wild horses of the Atlantic coast. For more information, see www.wildhorseislands.com and www.quaggapress.com .
