has anyone ever thought to check out the truth as to exactly how much land and money was set aside for the mustang in the area he describes that would shut some mouths and open a few eyes,I am trying to get a hold of the county and find out exactly what was set aside very hard to do as records are not kept as accurately then as now ,Have found that he did have the horse in races but not him as the rider in all of them and the only type of picture found shows horse and him standing ,Back to the point has anyone bothered to check back to the county and state records ,the land was willed for the wild mustang and if I read correctly ,no names identified but land was sold off by an heir because it was not filed correctly to stay as a refuge for the horses,If I ever find more information I will put it in for everyone to see.

I give this book only one star, not for the content itself, but for the commentary that fills the first seventeen pages. What the editors and researchers of this piece of work do not seem to understand is that Frank Hopkins, liar though he might have been, seems more to be inserting himself into the American mythology rather than it's history. Most of the folks responsible for this publication seem to be angry that they have been lead down the garden path and are incapable of seeing the larger picture. This comes out in their commentary, handed down with the same scathing condescension of an overzealous adult trying to convince a kid that Santa doesn't exist. I reccomend the book though, and reccomend also that when you buy it, just grab those first seventeen pages or so and start ripping. Some people, unfortunately, seem to be born without the capacity for faith and imagination and it is unfortunate that they got their hands on this particular piece of work.Was this review helpful?
