About this title


A true story of adventure from the Canadian west . . .

When the Great Depression his southern Saskatchewan, desperate ranchers got together to decide what they could do to save their dying herds of cattle and horses. Some thought the answer was to relocate the animals to more fertile regions of western Canada.

This true story describes a wrangler crew's fourteen-hundred-mile journey through vast prairie and forest with a large herd of horses. Their trek, from Val Marie in southern Saskatchewan to the Peace River country of British Columbia, took them through towns of unsurveyed wilderness, and across wide rives and dusty plains. This delightful tale of friendship, hard work, and extraordinary challenges is narrated by the foreman of the crew in the distinctive vernacular of an old Canadian horseman.

Russell V. 'Curly' Gunter, who died in 1980, wrote The Mustang Wranglers to keep alive the memory of his great adventure. So ride along with this pioneer cowboy and is crew - Rawhide, Whalebone, Big George, and Little Bill - through a lost part of the Old West.
