About this product
- DescriptionHave you ever seen a wild horse? Really seen one, t in a documentary or a car commercial, but in real life, up close and equine? If you haven't, it's about time. Although their numbers in the United States have declined alarmingly, wild horses may still be closer than you think. Historic herds survive on several Atlantic coast barrier islands within a day's drive of roughly half the U.S. population. These islands offer exceptional opportunities for observing natural horse behavior in beautiful settings. They're also popular vacation spots that offer a wide variety of other activities. To help you plan a memorable encounter, Quagga Press has just published Wild Horse Vacations: Your Guide to the Atlantic Wild Horse Trail With Local Attractions and Amenities, by award-winning writer-illustrator Bonnie Gruenberg. Volume 1 covers the herds of Assateague Island, straddling the Virginia-Maryland border, and Corolla, on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Volume 2 covers Ocracoke and Shackleford Banks, N.C., and Cumberland Island, Ga. Both volumes are packed with tips about horse watching and the latest information about lodging, dining, nearby attractions, and rainy-day recreation. They also provide interesting facts about each locale and suggestions for rewarding side trips, all leavened with the author's deep insight and wry humor. Volume 1 and 2 are sold separately. Wild-horse watching is addictive, however, and you'll kick yourself if you don't get the pair. The Atlantic Wild Horse Trail, the author's own creation, is a horse-watcher's avenue to a lifetime of enjoyment and learning. This virtual route encompasses six states and more than 1,700 miles of highways, bridges, and ferry routes linking all seven wild herds and several other important horse populations into a network of getaway destinations for horse lovers, photographers, hikers, paddlers, campers, and nature enthusiasts. There are markers to miss or signs to follow, so let the Wild Horse Vacations guides lead the way.
