About Wild Horses of the West

An entertaining and well-researched look at one of the most controversial animal welfare issues of our time—the protection of free-roaming horses on the West’s public lands. This is the first book in decades to include the entire story of these magnificent animals, from their evolution and biology to their historical integration into conquistador, Native American, and cowboy cultures.  De Steiguer goes on to address the modern issues— ecology, conservation, and land management—surrounding wild horses in the West today.
