Book Description

In the 1800's, Indian tribes were forced off the plains and onto reservations. Their horses killed or left to run wild, growing into great herds. A new breed of cowboy, the Mustang Hunter was born. It was at this time that Leif Nelson, an immigrant from Norway, arrived to live with his Uncle Martin in Fort Musselshell. Leif first set eyes on the beautiful stallion while riding the lonely prairie. He witnesses him fight a grey stallion to the death for his mustang mares. He named the stallion Thor

The tale of this stallion in Montana spread as riders from all corners of the land came with their best horses. They returned defeated, covered with Musselshell dust, swearing that the white stallion could not be caught.

A Blackfoot hunting party captures Leif while he is hunting Thor. Rescued by a rancher, he falls in love with his daughter, Sarna. Later he befriends a loner, Antone Baine, who introduces Leif to his horse, Big Red.

This is a story of mustangs, love, and death. You must read this tale for the exciting finish. Even the Blackfoot braves shake their heads for what they witness and raise their lances to the sky, chanting to the Great Spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Big Sky Story December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It is rich in its description of the nature and the land. The author portrays his love for Montana in his word pictures of the Snowy Mountains and the Mussellshell River area in the state. This is woven seamlessly into the narrative which evokes a "you are there" feeling. While his characters and the era are authentically drawn, it is in my view, primarily the story of Leif Nelson. He is a man who is new to America and the West and who finds a place for himself there.
Thor, the horse in the title, is threaded masterly throughout the story. He is a magnificent animal that inspires many mustang hunters as he continues to evade capture. But it is also a love story between a man and a woman and a man and a horse.
I found the book to be a page-turner from the beginning to the poignant end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, enjoyable reading December 6, 2012
By Mike
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A Stallion Free and Wild was a very enjoyable book. The author's vivid description of Leif Nelson's experiences in early western America after his arrival from Norway made it impossible to put the book down. Leif's relationship with Sarna and the eventual outcome were very emotional. A great book for western lovers. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Stallion Free and Wild May 27, 2013
By Maggie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story. Have always enjoyed horse/western stories and that hasn't changed even at my advanced age of 77. Hardships and sad endings are realistic for that time period. I especially loved the way this story ended. Not going to give it away here, but it left me with a good feeling and I was glad I read it. Thank you Mr. Anderson for sharing your stories. Another reason why I love my Kindle is that I discover new authors.

This was such a beautiful story. Although sad at times it was very realistic and reminded me of the Louis L'Amour books I used to read. Thank you for sharing.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A wonderfull book A stallion free and wilda September 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I applaud this wrighter of this wonderfull book he allows his readers the joy of learning more about that long ago time when there was still free roaming. mustangs and A apprishate that thease mustangs must stay free.Not like our government thinks they are A nusence to the cattle ranchers there cattle is more important than the wild horse's. BLM chases thease horse's with hellacopters chasing thease port animals are ran so hard so often they have
had horses die from exhaustion and the poor foals die while being chased then if some of the foals live through the chase they are separated from there moms left out to die of hunger or heat as thease pens have no shelter to allow them to get out of the blistering heat with there water in full sun heating the only water they have. This writhed is taking us on A wonderfully trip to the way things were and how people helped others who needed it they just helped all ways available the humanity that has been in place for hunA Stallion Free and Wildderds of years and now no one wants to help his neighbors they just turn there back like bulling.
