Synopsis

The absorbing story of living with mustangs across the American West For more than five years, Marie-Luce Hubert and Jean-Louis Klein lived side byside with mustangs in a mythical quest that took them from North Dakota to Nevada, where the forests, canyons and plains still echo with the hoofbeats of these magnificent animals. With patience and perseverance, the authors gained acceptance by the herds and took countless photographs that testify to the mustangs' fragile beauty and exceptional way of life. The book begins with a detailed history of the origins and evolution of the mustang. The fascinating saga that follows tells how the mustang came to the plains of the American West and explains the huge impact these horses had on the lives of Native Americans. Amazing photographs record each stage of mustang life, from the rearing of colts to the fascination and beauty of playtimes. An in-depth study reveals the stages of life for mustangs, covering birth, adolescence, mating and death. It conveys the daily hardships and dangers these beautiful creatures face in the wild. A special section is devoted to the ongoing relationship between humans and mustangs, one that is so fraught with peril for the horse. General readers, horse lovers and riders, and devotees of the American West will revel in the intimacy shared with these mustang herds and discover the true nature of this mysterious animal.
