Wild Horse Country: The History, Myth, and Future of the Mustang follows the history of wild horses in America and threats to the wild mustang's continued existence, following all aspects of the mustang as a horse, an American icon, and an animal which has long been persecuted because of their population and special management issues. The dysfunctional system of rounding up wild horses and maintaining them in non-wild holding centers in the Midwest only exists because wildlife managers, government agencies, ranchers, and wild horse advocates can't agree on what to do with them. This history traces the roots and fundamentals of these conflicts and provides a powerful survey key to understanding the background and current plight of the wild mustang in a wide-reaching survey highly recommended for any wildlife or equine collection.
