A LOS ANGELES TIMES BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR
“Like the best nonfiction writers of our time (Jon Krakauer and Bruce Chatwin come to mind), Stillman's prose is inviting, her voice authoritative and her vision imaginative and impressively broad.”
—Los Angeles Times
"A fascinating narrative with all the grace and power embodied in the wild horses that once populated the Western range by the hundreds of thousands . . . [A] magnificently told saga."
- - Albuquerque Journal
“Powerful… Stillman’s talent as a writer makes this impossible [to stop reading], to the mustang’s benefit."
"A circumspect writer passionate about her purpose can produce a significant gift for readers. Stillman's wonderful chronicle of America's mustangs is an excellent example."
"Brisk, smart, thorough, and surprising."
"Stillman's work is a must-read, a must-know, and a call to action for all those who hope to save the American mustang."
--The Equestrian News
“Rich imagery is a hallmark of Mustang… More important, though, is the chronicle provided, for the days of the wild mustang are fleeting as the West becomes increasingly urbanized and as some humans become less, in a word, humane.”
—National Parks Traveler
