The must-have book on Sorraias, mustangs, and Sorraia mustangs. The text is in both English and German in the same book. "One of the most important and especially responsible works published in recent years," says zoologist Prof. Dr. Willmann about this book, "which brings to your attention one of the world's last primitive horses, the Sorraia, and the precarious situation its offshoot, the Sorraia-type mustang, is in." Wild Horses, feral horses, ancestral horses, the Sorraia horse, history of the American mustang, the Spanish mustang, the preservation of the Spanish mustang and the Sorraia, scientific proof for the authenticity of the Sorraia mustang – these are topices covered in this outstanding book, which deals with Przewalski's horse as well as with the Tarpan, with ancestral wild horse forms, with the "Barb myth," with the question of how Sorraias came to the New World, with how they could survive in the wild, and with the history of different mustang herds. "Born Survivors on the Eve of Extinction" – interesting, educational, and fascinating reading for all Iberian horse enthusiasts, wild horse lovers, and mustang fans. Includes many beautiful color photographs.
