Description

The author of the Phantom Stallion series presents a "gorgeously written, richly photographed and passionately argued" defense of America's mustangs (Sy Montgomery, author of Kakapo Rescue). Mustangs have thrived for thousands of generations. But now they are under attack from people who see them as pests. The lucky ones are adopted. Some are sent to long-term holding pens; more and more are sold for slaughter. But courageous young people are trying to stop the round-ups and the senseless killings. They are standing up to the government and big business to save these American icons. With eye witness accounts, cutting-edge science, and full-color photographs, Terri Farley and Melissa Farlow invite readers into the world of mustangs in all its beauty, and profile the people leading the charge to keep horses wild and free. Includes notes and sources, index, and glossary. "Anyone who cares about wild horses should read this book. So should anyone who cares about how science is being abused to justify flawed management policies masquerading as 'responsible conservation.'" —Dr. Ross MacPhee, curator, department of mammalogy, American Museum of Natural History "Exceptionally eye-catching photography, and a final chapter on children and teens involved in the fight to save wild horses is particularly evocative and will surely usher in a new generation of activists." —Booklist "Fast-paced and factual, Wild at Heart weaves history, evolution, behavior, and first person accounts of North America's native wild horses into a unique and highly entertaining book." —Ginger Kathrens, Emmy Award–winning producer, cinematographer, and biographer of the wild stallion Cloud "A sweeping introduction to the wild horses of the American West, their past, present, and possible future." —Kirkus Reviews
