Publisher Comments:

Dr. Ron Keiper and Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick have both, in their own unique way, made the wild horses of Assateague Island, Maryland their livesand#8217; work. Experience Dr. Keiper's handwritten notesand#8212;taken over countless watchful hours in the fieldand#8212;which are both a diary and a scientific log that chart the lives of his equine subjects, some of nature's greatest survivors. And follow Dr. Kirkpatrick from the lab to the field as he works tirelessly to find a way to manage the horse population with a birth control vaccine, and helps keep the precarious balance of Assateagueand#8217;s ecosystem intact. Descriptive prose meets solid science as author Kay Frydenborg offers a rare glimpse into the wild herds of Assateague, sharing beautiful photos of the Assateague herds in their island home and of both of the scientists at workand#8212;some of them never seen before.

Review:

"Filled with quizzes, trivia, top 10 lists, and information about equine behavior, history, sports, and more, this guidebook aims straight at the hearts of horse-loving tweens. Produced in collaboration with model horse manufacturer Breyer (which gets some nice coverage in the collectibles section), the book runs the gamut from how to pick a horse's name to horses in popular culture, the evolution of the species, and horse-related events nationwide. The many sidebars, tidbits, and anecdotes encourage casual browsing--horse lovers will be in heaven. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7 — 12. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
