Grade 3-5-In this tribute to the American mustang, a sparse, flowing text melds with vivid color photos to capture the beauty of these creatures and the Black Hills Sanctuary where they live. The pictures of these magnificent animals make it easy for readers to understand why "cowboy-conservationist" Dayton Hyde wanted to save them from being hunted and slaughtered or captured and condemned to live in corrals until they might be lucky enough to be adopted. He procured 11,000 acres of rangeland in South Dakota and created a wild horse sanctuary, allowing the animals that have been sent there since the 1980s to live out their lives in a natural habitat. The brief descriptions of individual horses, accompanied by photos that show their unique markings or other physical traits, give a personal touch to this group of horses. Readers who love these animals will enjoy reading about this wildlife sanctuary and will appreciate learning how one person can make a difference.
