This book is written by a naturalist who does excellent field work! Her chapters on wild horse band behavior, and on the place of the horse in Native American life (and hearts), are my favorite, but every chapter contributes to the wealth of knowledge and research available to those of us who want to get a full picture.

It occurred to me that the information on the legislative efforts at various levels of government and on what was going on at BLM sites at the same time would take a great deal of research to pull together. Having read several other books on this subject, this is the most complete coverage I have encountered to date. Best of all, she was there! This is not completely secondhand information. It is possible that the new book by University of Arizona's J. Edward de Steiguer may be as thorough, but I have not purchased it yet.

It is truly unfortunate that competing interests, a lack of integrity in our government under all administrations to date, and long-held beliefs, based on facts or fiction, interfere with what should be the animals' return to the land of their species' origin.

Quite comprehensive. Hard to read because of all the abuse visited Mustangs suffered at the hand of people for and against them.

The book has much information about mustangs that I had been wondering about. It tells you about the original horses and how they have been here all along. I have mustangs and the information has been really wonderful.

My, is it easy to get spoiled with color photos in books now! The combination of this book and her newer works, with color photos, tells the story of mustangs beautifully.

Really controversial subject, as far as I'm concerned the slaughter houses need to pass go again. I always wondered if these horses are "saved" does that mean they live forever?????? Just trying to use 20 words. Ridiculous requirement...
