Book Details

Turn back the clock with History Comics, First Second's new nonfiction graphic novel series! In this volume, learn how wild mustangs were first introduced to America and how they still roam free today.

On the North American plains, wild mustangs have roamed for generations . . . shaping human history and struggling to survive it. For the Spanish, they were a tool of conquest. For Native Americans, they brought on a new way of life where horsemanship and horse-trading were central. And for the entire world, wild mustangs became a renowned wonder of the American West. There are still thousands of mustangs in the wild today, but they struggle to survive in an ever-changing landscape and their future is by no means guaranteed.

In The News

"Koch tucks proud, graceful horses aplenty, both wild and at work, into her mix of square and free-form sequential panels. Corrals both the romantic and revolting sides of the story: Elementary and middle school readers who saddle up are in for a heady ride."—School Library Journal

"
Dynamic comics-panel illustrations use self-referential techniques to move the humorous narrative forward, while "Mane Idea" asides explore topics like horse diet and digestion." —Horn Book
