This new book, Corolla’s Wild Horses, tells the stories of the horses and their protectors. The book recounts the history of the Banker horses that have roamed the Currituck Outer Banks for five hundred years and how the area has changed dramatically, with a boom in tourism bringing increased visitation and more traffic during the last four decades. A boon to the local economy in many ways, these changes have also led to more dangerous interactions with the herd. A group of locals reacted by creating the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. Learn about the horses and the actions taken to preserve them and help them thrive. Read tales of some of the characters among the herd, including the iconic stallion Star, the blind stallion Amadeo,, and Raymond the mule.
Jeff Hampton was a reporter for more than thirty years and covered the Outer Banks for the Virginian-Pilot newspaper. He wrote more than one hundred stories about the Corolla wild horses and has done extensive research on the herd. Foreword by Meg Puckett, herd manager of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.
