WILD HORSE ANNIE: Velma Johnston and Her Fight to Save the Mustangs
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
Reno & Las Vegas, NV: University of Nevada Press, (2012). First edition - An account of Annie Johnston - "Wild Horse Annie" - twenty-seven year fight to save the mustangs from slaughter - and to establish refuges for them, not just in her state of Nevada but across the West. Although it seemed like she had succeeded when Congress passed the Wild Free Horse and Burro Act in 1971, and the Supreme Court upheld it, there have been many setbacks since - both legislative and bureaucratic. Still, without the efforts of this shy Nevada horsewife, there would probably not be any mustangs in the wild at all. Illustrated with photographs. Notes. xiv, 212 pp.
