In a powerful blend of history and contemporary reporting, New York Times reporter David Philipps traces the rich history of wild horses in America: their introduction by the Spanish conquistadors, their role in the epic battles between Native Americans and settlers, their vital place in American self-mythology. He travels through some of the most remote parts of the American West, known as Wild Horse Country, to investigate the wild horse's current dilemma, caught between the clashing ideals of ranchers, scientists, animal rights activists, slaughterhouse employees, and government officials.

We own 10 mustangs
I love how David gave equal thought to every argument on both sides and closed with a compromising solution. My significant other and I have tried to do our part of adopting to keep the cowboy/mustang partnership alive. I was surprised that there wasn’t more mention of the adoption programs through the Mustang Heritage Foundation such as the Extreme Mustang Makeovers and the TIP program. Before reading this I felt like horses were an evasive species, now I believe they have a place here. The solution offered is one I would love to see gain traction. A must read for anyone involved with wild horses.
