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,

    A Must Read for Your Level 4 Reader even if they are not a horse aficionado! Teachers - this is a perfect book for a book report!

    This book is so well written, I would read everything the author has. I got this book for my Level 3 reader to challenge her. I had no idea it was going to teach her SO much about wild horses. It's about wild horses all over the world and their history, their present and their fates. I actually learned something from it, it was so well written, so well executed and the illustrations really bring it to life. A must have for your reader - in fact calling all teachers!!! You want your readers to read something and then report on it, this book is just the ticket. For $3.99 it's a bit of past, present and future you never get in textbooks!

    This book is amazing i am a perfessional rider i have my own riding classes and i read this out loud to my students and it turns out no one fell asleep on me. Most of you children just said i love hores or if you let go you will fall off. To all of you children that is reading this express yourself. Tell more about what you read! It will be exciting to know what you thought or read.
