Carol L. Erickson from Wallace, Idaho, wrote a book that tells the true story of the Curly Horse of America
Nevada's Mystery Horse by rancher Carol L. Erickson explores the amazing mystery of the curly-haired horse and tells how she came to fall in love with the breed.
Wallace, ID April 22, 2007 -- Nevada's Mystery Horse by Carol L. Erickson investigates a real 21st century mystery--the origins of curly-haired horses, a breed which managed to survive against incredible odds.
Most people have never seen a curly-haired horse, and their origins remain a complete mystery. Yet fourth generation rancher Carol L. Erickson fell in love with these strange curly-haired horses the moment she saw a photo of them. Nevada's Mystery Horse is her gripping account of how one very special woman came to champion a very exotic breed, and how careful breeding saved them from extinction.
Erickson journeys back to the 1930s to describe how these mesmerizing animals were initially destroyed because ranchers believed they were sick. Originally, less than 300 of these creatures were alive, but because of increased interest and the formation of a curly-haired horse registry, they are now 3000 strong and growing.
This is a fascinating story for anyone who loves horses, cares about preservation, or just loves a galloping good mystery. Told with warmth, wit and a keen love of animals, Nevada's Mystery Horse is a winner to be enjoyed by all.
