Publisher's Summary

Last Chance Mustang is the story of Samson, a formerly free-roaming, still wild-at-heart American mustang that was plucked from his mountainous Nevada home and thrown into the domestic horse world, where he was brutalized and victimized. After years of abuse, Samson had evolved into a hateful and hated, maladjusted beast - until the day he found his way to a rural Illinois farm, an ill-equipped owner, and one last chance.

Mitch Bornstein's task was to tame the violent beast whose best defense had become offense. He had 20 years of experience fixing unfixable horses, but Samson would be his greatest challenge. Through the pair's many struggles and countless battles, Samson would teach Mitch about the true power of hope, friendship, redemption, and the inspiring mettle of the forever wild and free American mustang.

Great story

Example of the commitment necessary to gentle a truly wild misunderstood and abused mustang. The writer uses every opportunity to expose the corrupt history of the Bureau of Land Management and their dishonest and cruel handling of of Mustangs they are supposed to protect. Hopefully it is in time to save the valiant breed!

wonderful book

loved the story of Sampson, it made me laugh and it made me cry.
The information given about how the American mustangs have been murdered is just horrible it's unbelievable that people can be so cruel and ruthless.
God will judge those who have done such cruelty to his innocent beautiful creatures

No horse lover should miss this book

This wonderful book is unforgettable. It makes a powerful statement about the healing qualities of love and respect. I learned so much about the American Mustang and plan to join the fight to protect these magnificent creatures.

Amazing story, and great information about our native wild horses and the tortuous ways they are treated

This book was so touching and informative. The Mustangs need us, just as when need them. Whether we know it or not. Let hope this book gets into the hands of persons who are willing to chip in and contribute to our mustangs' futures.

a story for horse (particularly Mustang) lovers

Loved this story of interaction between a trainer and Mustang, having loved 2 Mustangs entrusted to our care. Also in the process, gives a great History of the horse and American Mustangs in particular.

Give the Mustang a chance

So sad that the LBM leads everyone to believe that they help the mustangs when all they do is kill and make their world a living hell.

Good book

Lots of historical facts & references about horses, different breeds, and the BLM program (mostly about it's many attempts & failures), but still a good story of a horse and his trainer. If you're not open minded to hear the opinions of folks that are adamantly against the BLM horse roundup program then there are a few parts that may frustrate/anger or challenge you. I skipped the majority of a chapter and some spots here or there simply because I wanted to hear about the encounters & progress with the horse more than I wanted to learn historical accuracy. I think horse folk will enjoy this book
