From the publisher: No other animal has captured the imagination or changed their lives as has the horse. Their grace, strength and beauty have made horses sought after as well as useful. What would kings and queens, knights and conquistadors, cowboys and stagecoach drivers, or farmers have done without them? In this informative book, Gail Gibbons, relates some of the long history horses and humans have shared. She looks at horse biology and behaviour, and includes colourful, clear, and accessible diagrams that will interest all who want to know more about these popular animals.
