Abstract "Tirades and threats. Hyperbole and deception. Living traditions and dying herds. The conflicts that rage around the wild horses of the Altantic coast can be loud, confusing, even vicious. Wild horses have lived on eastern barrier islands for hundreds of years, and many people want them to remain. Advocates and detractors alike turn to science to support their views, but often reach different conclusions from the same information."-- Page 4 of cover.
