It shows the ''real'' versions of Equestria's founders as shown in "Hearth's Warming Eve," presented as an extensive InUniverse history book. It starts with the nomadic ancestors of Equestrians settling of the Old Land that the ponies lived in, then describes the origins of the three tribes, the events that led to Hearth's Warming, and the formation of Equestria.
