Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I loved the beginning of this book when we learned about Velma Johnson and her fight to save the Mustangs back in 1950. After that, it got rather technical and a little too factual and long winded for the younger audience (10 year olds). There was a lot of legal talk and many minute details. This book is about the plight of wild mustangs and how children especially are working to rescue them. The photographs were gorgeous and will certainly appeal to children and horse lovers of any age. I think following one band more closely and less legal talk would have done as well. There was another section that spoke of several young people who were working on rescue efforts but again it was dry. I found the book a bit long and I feel like the information could have been presented better with shorterand more to the point descriptions. The book is geared to children aged 10 to 12, but I feel it would be better suited to students 12 to 14. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
