The Iberian horse is ever present in human history. They have been a friend and partner to man for over 3,000 years and are as domestic as a pet poodle. Still, a misguided millionaire thought they should be returned to the wild. Far from thriving, they were forced to fight for their lives when a harsh winter trapped them in a box canyon with little food and a starving wolf pack. This is the story of the horses that survived this folly and of the men who risked their lives to rescue them. Together they braved bitter cold, avalanches, blinding blizzards, wolf attacks, flash floods and an eighty mile forced march under the harshest conditions.
The story is uniquely told from the perspective of both the men and the horses. It is an exciting read with plenty of action, adventure, suspense and pathos. The author does more than simply narrate. He brings the story to life. You will feel their cold, their fatigue, their desperation and you will not soon forget the two main characters. Both are larger than life, yet wholly representative of the best of us.
If you are an animal lover or an adventure fan, you will like this book.
