About this book

The origin of the Desert Horses is now lost in time, the subject of endless speculation --were they part of the stud of the legendary Baron von Wolf of Schloss Duwisib, or military remounts belonging to the South African forces in World War 1? However, whether one regards them as a mistake of history or a symbol of survival, the wild horses of the Namib fascinate all those who see them. Almost a century has elapsed since their escape from domestication, and time has enabled them to adapt to the harsh conditions of their life in the desert. This book shows the horses in beautiful black-and-white photographs, and short chapters provide background information.
