Conflicts and Controversies of the Atlantic Coast Herds
Quagga Press is the leading publisher of books about the wild horses of the Atlantic Coast barrier islands, with more titles in print on this topic than any other press. While most Western mustangs are shy and live in nearly inaccessible ranges, the wild horses of the east coast are habituated to human visitors and offer opportunities for observing horse behavior in the wild. Additionally, these islands lie within a day’s drive of nearly half of the United States population.
A vivid portrait of threatened animals and the changing islands that are their home. Explores the complexities of these controversial herds: history and genetics, management conflicts, what these horses signify and what they tell us about ourselves. Clear, engaging prose and abundant photographs. By Bonnie Gruenberg
