Series: Scientists in the Field

Publisher's Description

Dr. Ron Keiper and Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick have both, in their own unique way, made the wild horses of Assateague Island, Maryland their lives’ work. Experience Dr. Keiper's handwritten notes—taken over countless watchful hours in the field—which are both a diary and a scientific log that chart the lives of his equine subjects, some of nature's greatest survivors. And follow Dr. Kirkpatrick from the lab to the field as he works tirelessly to find a way to manage the horse population with a birth control vaccine, and helps keep the precarious balance of Assateague’s ecosystem intact.

Descriptive prose meets solid science as author Kay Frydenborg offers a rare glimpse into the wild herds of Assateague, sharing beautiful photos of the Assateague herds in their island home and of both of the scientists at work—some of them never seen before.

Editorial Reviews

"[The] latest title in the consistently interesting Scientists in the Field series . . . A science title with wide potential appeal."
Kirkus

"Well researched, clearly written, and quite informative, this handsome book offers close-up views of scientists at work and why their work matters."
Booklist, starred review

"The information—a combination of lab and field science details and personal observation—is accessible and engaging."
Horn Book

"As with other titles in this series, the photography is outstanding, and the images of horses going about their daily business in all kinds of conditions put them front and center. . . . A worth complement to most collections."
School Library Journal, starred review
