Description

What animal can . . . run so fast, its feet don't always touch the ground, weigh more than 2,000 pounds, sense people's emotions bytheir smell, . . . and wear shoes Why, a horse, of course! Horses are some of the most fascinating - and important - creatures on Earth. In fact, our world would not be the way it is today if not for horses. Horses have carried medieval knights into battle, transported settlers to the American West, and hauled fire engines and buses. They even turned the wheels that provided power for factories! But one of their greatest, most enduring gifts to us is companionship and trust. So come along with Seymour Simon, whom the New York Times calls "the dean of the [children's science book] field," and learn more about these amazing animals - straight from the horse's mouth!
