Like Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall, or Temple Grandin, Velma Johnston dedicated her life to public awareness and protection of animals. "Wild Horse Annie""and the Last of the Mustangs" follows Velma from her childhood, in which she was disfigured by polio, to her dangerous vigilante-style missions to free captured horses and document round-ups, through the innovative and exhaustive grassroots campaign which earned her the nickname "Wild Horse Annie" and led to Congress passing the "Wild Horse Annie Bill," to her friendship with renowned children's author and horse-lover Marguerite Henry..
A powerful combination of adventure, history, and biography, "Wild Horse Annie and the Last of the Mustangs" beautifully captures the romance and magic of wild horses and the character of the strong-willed woman who made their survival her legacy. .
