The most visually stunning book ever produced about horses, in a portable new format. This sumptuous tribute to the earth's most beautiful animal has been redesigned in a new mini format that is 100 pages longer than the original. Renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand--master of light and shadow, angle and exposure--etches these magnificent creatures and their human partners in photographs shot on location and around the globe, from Montana to Russia, central Asia to Argentina, Mongolia and Cameroon, and points in between.

Beautiful hardcover coffee table book. The photographs in this book are somewhat dark, poorly lit, and at times staged and contrived (hence my rating of 4 stars), but the book is remarkable for its portrayal of some of the more obscure and not oft' mentioned breeds that are overlooked in most other generic all-encompassing breed books.

From Australia to the steppes of Russia, to Mongolia to Montana, and points between, a variety of different horse breeds are showcased: noble Arabians, Thoroughbreds, to workhorse draft breeds, to exotic and in between.

Accompanying text offers a brief history and role of each breed. ( )
