Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The team behind Amazing Grazing (about environmentally safe ranching) delivers another eye-catching story of unusual interest, this one featuring the wild horses of South Dakota's Black Hills Sanctuary. Framed by ample white space, Upitis's stunning pictures of the sinewy, graceful horses encompass a variety of seasons and times of day; sunsets, nighttime views and golden autumn light evoke a wide appreciation of the majestic setting. Peterson's often poetic prose sets the scene ("This is the land of silver sagebrush and cowboy legends [where] scraggly buzzards perch on fence posts") and describes individual horses, and she judiciously frames the narrative with the story of how "cowboy-conservationist" Dayton Hyde realized his dream of a wild horse preserve. The photos don't always match up with the text. While Petersen writes of Dayton's childhood experiences with horses and gives a straightforward history of mustangs, the photographs continue to show the present-day horses at the sanctuary. If they grapple with a few terms like "conservationist," "rimrock" and "marker mares," used matter-of-factly in the text, the stirring photos and inspiring story could easily prompt readers to deepen their knowledge of the subject. Ages 8-up. (Mar.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
This book is an outstanding account of the American wild mustang and the Black Hills Sanctuary in South Dakota where hundreds of them now live. Those who read this book will meet real life horses, learn their names and habits, and get caught up in the beauty of the Sanctuary. Thousands of visitors visit each year and are rewarded with seeing wild mustangs in a natural habitat. The photographs found on each page of the book are breathtaking and capture nature as it is meant to be. This is a perfect selection for animal lovers, but it also is an excellent choice for people interested in photography. The balance of the colors, animals with nature, and lighting is very informative in the finished photo. Fascinating from start to finish; both young and old will enjoy it. 2003, Boyds Mills Press,

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-In this tribute to the American mustang, a sparse, flowing text melds with vivid color photos to capture the beauty of these creatures and the Black Hills Sanctuary where they live. The pictures of these magnificent animals make it easy for readers to understand why "cowboy-conservationist" Dayton Hyde wanted to save them from being hunted and slaughtered or captured and condemned to live in corrals until they might be lucky enough to be adopted. He procured 11,000 acres of rangeland in South Dakota and created a wild horse sanctuary, allowing the animals that have been sent there since the 1980s to live out their lives in a natural habitat. The brief descriptions of individual horses, accompanied by photos that show their unique markings or other physical traits, give a personal touch to this group of horses. Readers who love these animals will enjoy reading about this wildlife sanctuary and will appreciate learning how one person can make a difference.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
