Product Details


* “The breathtaking and often dramatic world of the Salt River wild horse is on full display in this stunning tribute for young readers. In the Tonto National Forest of Arizona, a pack of wild horses enters the scene. At times, these majestic animals appear almost tame, drinking water from a stream, eating wild grasses, or simply pausing to take in the view. Other times, readers are reminded of their truly wild nature as they gallop at high speeds or rise up on two legs, their hooves moving quickly through the air. Through magnificent full-color spreads and short, poetic phrases, Marr gives readers a what feels like you-are-there glimpse of these beautiful creatures. Descriptive and sensory language matches perfectly with the action-packed photography that is also an introduction to the environment and plant life of this region. A short note in the end serves as a plea to help these animals and provides context for sharing their story. . . . Readers will come back time and again just to experience the horses. A visual treat that would enhance any nonfiction collection serving younger readers.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“In breathtaking photographs and lyrical text, the beauty and strength of wild horses are brought to life before the reader. Crisp, vivid photographs depict these majestic creatures interacting with one another, enjoying cool water, running, stomping, and rearing. Poetic text corresponds perfectly with the photographs, describing the horses and their activities and conveying the wonder and unique magic wild horses bring to the world. Vibrant double-page spreads and short sentences make this an excellent choice for story time as well as a draw for young horse and nature lovers. Readers will grow to appreciate the beauty of wild horses and will be left thinking deeply about the importance of protecting these creatures and their natural homes to ensure their continued survival. A lovely dedication to horses whose photographs will leave readers in awe—and a beautiful addition to children’s collections.” —Booklist
