About this book

Please note, despite what the title suggests, this is not a field guide to tracks left by these horses.

The legendary wild horses of Corolla, on North Carolina's perilous Outer Banks, are loved by millions around the world, but barely tolerated on their home range. Can one of the rarest strains of Colonial Spanish Horse endure against increasing odds? Wild horses have lived on the Atlantic coast for hundreds of years. Now confined to a few barrier islands in four states, they attract millions of visitors even as they generate speculation, concern, and spirited debate. Millions of visitors who frequent vacation spots along the Atlantic Wild Horse Trail are eager to learn about the wild herds that roam the nearby islands.

The Hoofprints Guide Series engage the reader with detailed information about the history, environment, behaviour, and prospects of these intriguing animals. Each guide presents a realistic, detailed account of one Atlantic coast herd and is packed with black-and-white photographs. The Hoofprints Guides are appealing to a general readership, yet are well-referenced and accurate enough to satisfy the scholar. Each of the Hoofprints Guides has been abridged from Bonnie Gruenberg's Wild Horse Dilemma: Conflicts and Controversies of the Atlantic Coast Herds (2015).
