The Horse: The Epic History
of Our Noble Companion





BookPeople and the Texas Memorial Museum are proud to present Wendy Williams, journalist and bestselling author of several books, including Kraken and Cape Wind, to share her new book, The Horse, here at BookPeople. In The Horse, Williams chronicles the 56-million-year journey of horses as she visits with horse experts around the world, revealing what our biological affinities and differences can tell us about the bond between horses and humans, and what our noble companion may think and feel. She blends profound scientific insights with remarkable stories to create a unique biography of the horse as a sentient being with a fascinating past and a finely nuanced mind. Join us!


Wendy Williams is a journalist whose work has appeared in The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Christian Science Monitor, among others. She is the author of several books, including Kraken and Cape Wind, and is a lifelong equestrienne. She lives in Mashpee, Massachusetts.
