Horses roamed the Outer Banks of North Carolina and much of the nearby mainland for centuries. Forces of development—and conservation—restricted the southern herds to Shackleford Banks and a few neighboring islands, however, and official management in the 1990s nearly eradicated them. They have partially recovered, but their situation remains precarious. Bonnie U. Gruenberg has studied, photographed, and written about wild horses for more than 20 years. Distilled from her encyclopedic Wild Horse Dilemma: Conflicts and Controversies of the Atlantic Coast Herds (Quagga Press, 2015), each Hoofprints Guide offers detailed information about the history, environment, behavior, and prospects of one Atlantic Coast herd in a convenient form with bonus photographs.
