J. Frank Dobie is the founder of the Institute of Range and the American Mustang, which creates sanctuaries for wild horses in South Dakota.Review:
"This is a magnificent book, so packed with lore and legend that one is not conscious of the fact that it is history, too. Frank Dobie tells the story of the mustangs . . . The story too of the men, and the way of life the mustang brought into being."—New York Herald Tribune (New York Herald Tribune)
"Mr. Dobie brings together all his findings in a single book of solid scholarship, documented to the hilt, and inspired by his unflagging enthusiasm for the wild free creatures of the West. The Mustangs will probably remain the standard work on the subject."—New York Times (New York Times)
