Farley, Terri

Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them

Photographs by Melissa Farlow. 2015. 208pp. $19.99 hc. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 978-0-544-39294-6. Grades 4-12

This book tells of the plight of wild horses in America. Beginning with the history of prehistoric horses to the efforts to protect wild horses from being driven off public lands in the 1970s, Farley provides a look into the world of wild horses and their treatment. Farley explains how the government has passed laws to protect these horses and then systematically has broken its own laws or has twisted them to suit the needs of others. 
She then details the efforts of young people who are fighting to protect the wild horses.
Ranging in age from nine to 18, they demonstrate the leadership, passion, and determination it takes to fight for a cause.
 This book is a good example of creative nonfiction that blends historical and persuasive writing.
