Classic history of mustangs and the Spaniards, Indians, and mustangers who handled them and eventually turned them into cow horses. Although the story of the horses' origins has been revised, and the treatment of Indians is out of date, this remains an excellent book. It was written only a few generations after the frontier was closed and it's full of stories and recollections by men who remembered those days. (Wells 2014, confused with item 2013).
