Gr. 2-4. In this book from the Road to Reading series, Stanley discusses wild horses around the world. Laid out with fairly large type and illustrated with attractive, soft-focus paintings in warm colors, the book begins with the horses of prehistoric times and ends with a heartening message of people working together to save wild horses in many locales. In between, short chapters focus on the wild horses of the Camargue in France, wild ponies on Virginia's Assateague and Chincoteague islands, the wild horses in the mountains "between France and Spain," the Exmoor horses of Britain, the yellow horses of Mongolia, the brumbies of the Australian outback, and the mustangs of Colorado, Nevada, and Wyoming. Though more (and better) maps and more precise information (where in Britain? what are the mountains called?) would have been welcome, this little volume will captivate young horse lovers who may be intimidated by longer books.
