What Readers Are Saying:
“A veritable encyclopedia of factual and legendary lore of Western horses—wild and broken . . . a picture of the horses of the frontier that is matchless for detail, directness and vitality. Here is the inside story of the way of the Western man with the Western horse—a story made infinitely more varied and colorful by the fact that the horse was usually as rugged, as individual, as independent and as ornery as the man who rode him. Mustangs and Cow Horses gives you your best chance to know both.” --The Dallas Morning News
