Since the first breeds were domesticated six thousand years ago, horses have captivated humans with their power, intellect, and beauty. And in the United States, no creature better embodies the American spirit than the wild mustang. In this pictorial tribute, wildlife writer/photographer (and lifelong horse guy) Steve Price traces "the history of the Western mustang"
from Eurasian grasslands to the Barbary Coast to southern Europe and across the Atlantic to the New World, where Spanish conquistadors, native tribes, white settlers, and eventually the US Bureau of Land Management all played a role in the mustang's story. America's Wild Horses
is a stirring celebration of a truly magnificent creature, bound to educate and enchant horse lovers. (KG)
