Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In this volume, photographer Hans Silvester points his lens at the famous horses of the Carmague region in southern France. Since prehistoric times, these rugged animals have run free in the vast swamps of the Rhone delta, where they have adapted to harsh conditions by banding together in small herds. Offering a glimpse of wild horse behaviour, this book shows the fierce white stallions as they protect their mares and foals and forage in their hostile but spectacular environment.
