The Horse : A Biography of Our Noble Companion Paperback



Horses 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, Wendy Williams 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 with 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.
