Mustang, Wild Spirit of the West - by Marguerite Henry - Beautiful Feet Books
Horses were in Annie Bronn's blood. For as long as she could remember, she had been fascinated by the spirited wild mustangs that roamed free throughoutthe West. So when greedy cattlemen start to round up the mustangs for slaughter, Annie knows it is up to her to save the breed. Her struggle to preserve these beautiful creatures from extinction took her all the way to the White House.
This is the true to life story of 'Wild Horse Annie' who almost single-handedly saved the wild-mustangs from extinction. A powerful tale of inner courage, this story takes place in Nevada and California in the 1940's and 50's and includes a wonderful overview of the important part the horse has played in American history.
