A very interesting and readable book about the history of the mustang. It starts with the ancient horse and has some interesting information about the Przewalski horse. Then it goes on to tell the story of the reintroduction of the horse by Spanish settlers and Conquistadors, then on to Indians, westward expansion, and Wild Horse Annie. It wraps up with a trip the author took to the Pryor Mountains and I believe (although he never mentions specifics about the pictures at all) this is where he took the majority of his pictures for the book. This book is wonderfully peppered with interesting stories and, like I said, it was very engaging to read and does not have that dry textbook-like feel.
I was surprised to find that in a book primarily about the Spanish heritage of the mustang there was no mention of either the Sulfur herd or the Kiger herd (the two herds with the highest percentage of Spanish blood). Even so, I do recommend this book to mustang enthusiasts like me. You will enjoy it.

I am the author of this book, so of course I think it's a great book. I had used up my supply of books and needed several as gifts in a hurry so I ordered them from Amazon, who had them in my mailbox in less than a week!
