Wild Horse Scientists (Scientists in the Field) (Paperback)


Wild horses have roamed the shores of Assateague Island for centuries. As their population increases, however, they risk damaging the delicate area's ecosystem and being taken off the island. Dr. Ron Keiper and Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick have each made these wild horses their lives' work.

Descriptive prose, solid science, and never-before-seen images of the reclusive Assateague herds reveal their fierce and untamed beauty.

Kay Frydenborg lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two dogs. She's the author of numerous books for young readers including ChocolateA Dog in the Cave, Wild Horse Scientists, They Dreamed of Horses, and Animal Therapist.

"The information—a combination of lab and field science details and personal observation—is accessible and engaging."

"As with other titles in this series, the photography is outstanding, and the images of horses going about their daily business in all kinds of conditions put them front and center. . . . A worth complement to most collections."
