She lives with her husband in Missoula, Montana. You can learn more about her on her web site: www.dorothyhinshawpatent.com.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7-- Wild horses continue to enchant animal lovers, who view the herds as symbols of American freedom, while the government and landowners struggle with the realities of free-ranging horses. Patent explores both sides of the issue objectively in this attractive volume. In her usual informative style, she relates the history of feral horses, depicts the lifestyle of the herds, and studies their current prospects. She supports the government's actions and the establishment of refuges. Her background on the Adopt-a-Horse program will inspire potential owners to pursue this alternative, while purists will appreciate her distinctions between the feral horse and the true Mustang (a distinction rarely made in similar books). The color photos match the quality of the Patent/Munoz team's previous collaborations. Munoz has selected appealing portraits and action shots of healthy-looking, colorful animals--which might not match the live creatures readers will be able to adopt. This book is a good companion to Jay Featherly's Mustangs: Wild Horses of the American West (Carolrhoda, 1986), which emphasizes lifestyle more than the environmental issues. --Charlene Strickland, formerly at Albuquerque Public Library , NM
