Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Horses have helped shaped the history of humankind. It's hard to imagine the Roman Empire, for example, without the image of a horse-drawn chariot coming to mind. And how else could the American Wild West have been tamed, without the hardy horses who pulled a settler's covered wagon and later powered a sod-buster's plough? But horses were not always domesticated. This entertaining and educational title in the popular "Road to Reading" series begins with a very brief history of how horses evolved from dog-sized mammals in the dinosaur days to the powerful animals we know today. Because this is a Mile 4/Early Chapter Book title, each of the following chapters details a different type of wild horse that can be still be found around the world today, including Chincoteague ponies, Australian brumbies, American mustangs and Mongolian "yellow zebras." Most important, the book emphasizes the importance of protecting and preserving these herds of wild horses, which remain a beautiful reminder of the time when all horses ran free. 2001, Golden Books,
