The Horse (Hardback)

Wendy Williams


Through the life of the horse, natural and human history meet. They have been our companions in work and leisure for thousands of years; as a species we have profited immeasurably from their resilience, strength and intelligence. In The Horse, journalist and equestrienne Wendy Williams brilliantly brings to life the story of one of the most-loved animals in the world. She travels the globe to discover the history of our noble companion, one which stretches back fifty-six million years. From the streets of Vienna to the rugged terrain of Galicia, Williams demonstrates the horse's intelligence and strength. Blending profound scientific insights and remarkable stories, The Horse is a unique biography of the animal which has carried us across plains and into battle, and whose fascinating past and finely-nuanced mind are brought to life here in this masterful work of narrative non-fiction.
