Summary:

Wild horses-also known as mustangs-live in a strange twilight. They are deeply American but not native; they are free-born symbols of liberty but tightly managed, thriving yet persecuted. Today, the wild horse is a ward of the state, with tens of thousands held in captivity by the federal government?nearly as many are left in the wild.

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.

    Incredibly thorough and full of facts from the many facets of the Wild Horse and Burro catastrophe that the United States is facing. Just wished every politician including Deb Haaland of the Dept of Interior and President Joe Biden would read or listen to this information. If the BLM that have caused this catastrophe even paid attention to the final 3 chapters and the information pertaining to population control methods we as the American taxpayer would not be footing the bill for millions of dollars spent on a never ending money pit. Bad decisions, bad management and poor decisions have dealt a often inhumane program costing horses their lives and their freedoms as well as destroying the metaphoric story of the American dream of freedom, family, justice and the ability to self manage our lives. Well written, documented and narrated.
