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

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.

Bittersweet

I never write reviews but this book touched me so much, the story is so compelling & heartbreaking at the same time. I am horse person and have bought so many books to understand horses, but this book has taught me so much about their character, their nobility and remarkable spirit. I believe horses are an incredible gift from God and have so much to teach us, if we will only listen! I am listening now!!

WOW

I love this book, and plan on buying it for my other horsey friends. I love the way it was written, and how I learned so much more about the plight of mustangs, while enjoying the story of a Mustang that had no future, coming to terms with his past, and learning to move past the trauma that humankind heaped on him.
