Sable Island, a small island off the coast of eastern Canada, is the site of some 500 wild horses, 500 shipwrecks, and 500 years of known history. Never settled, the island, also known as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic," has seen temporary occupation by shipwrecked sailors, transported convicts, pirates, and wreckers. The wild horses, named for the island they inhabit, abandoned there long ago or cast ashore from wrecks, are now the only terrestrial mammals on Sable Island. Roebrto Dutesco's twenty years' documentation of Sable Island comes to you as a stunning volume of photographs, an unprecedented collection of extraordinary moments in a place uninhabited by humans, where the wild horses run free, unaware and unafraid of man. Dutesco portrays the wild beauty of these horses as well as the barren and unspoiled quality of the island, creating an immersive photographic memoir that captures the soul and spirit. The Romanian-born Canadian photographer's aim is to document and record this enchanted place for posterity, for our children's children, as an important place in Earth's history, and more so in our current moment, when unique wild places are vanishing. It is Dutesco's life project, celebrating the beauty he encountered in a place forgotten by time, desire, and conquest--Sable Island.

From acclaimed science writer Sandra Markle comes a fascinating survival story about the wild horses of Sable Island. During a shipwreck, a young stallion leads a band of horses to safety on an arc of golden land-Sable Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia. In gorgeously illustrated panoramic views, readers will see how the herd quickly adapted to harsh winters before the warmth of spring brought new life and new foals. But when a severe summer storm puts the horses in danger once again, only by racing the wild wind can they survive the trials of nature in their new home.

"Ellie believes that she will live in her little village on the coast of Nova Scotia for always. But when her father gets a job on Sable Island, she must say farewell to her beloved home and her mother's final resting place. Not even the idea of seeing the wild horses that roam the island can ease her pain of leaving. And after arriving on the sandy, windswept crescent of land, Ellie feels adrift and alone ... until one afternoon when she wakens on a dune to find herself looking into the curious eyes of a wild stallion. Little by little, as the days pass, Ellie gets closer to the beautiful chocolate-colored horse. Yet she soon discovers something that could take him away from his home, his herd, and her. Ellie has lost too much already. Will she loose her island horse, too?"--P. [2] of cover.

Both haunted and driven to discover a 100 year old secret, storyteller Jill Martin, leads the reader on a journey to one of the loneliest places in North America: Sable Island. Sculpted by wind and waves, this thin slice of grass-covered dunes for centuries has lured hundreds of ships to founder on its treacherous sand bars. Only the foolhardy or naïve dared to underestimate the dangers of the Graveyard of the Atlantic. It is to this notorious outpost a hundred miles from mainland Nova Scotia that newly appointed Superintendent of Lifesaving, RJ Bouteillier, brings his young family in 1884. In this harsh, isolated and mysterious environment far from city life, young Beatrice, a woman who challenges the prescribed roles of her sex, crosses the threshold from childhood to adulthood. Entries in the visitor’s book penned by long dead authors come to life in this engaging treasure hunt of passion and betrayal. Their stories unlock the portal to that distant past and chronicle the everyday lives of the residents of Sable Island. Coaxed ever deeper into the island’s labyrinth, the reader discovers that Sable reveals her secrets on her own terms and in her own time.
