Wild horses have roamed Nevada and other Western states for centuries, riding the ranges as living symbols of freedom.The mustangs also have been at the center of an emotional battle between ranchers who graze cattle and other livestock on public land and wild horse advocates who want to let the animals roam free in the same place.In the middle stands the Bureau of Land Management, the government agency charged with protecting wild horses and burros while making sure they don’t overpopulate the land. Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Laura Myers and photographer John Locher investigated the conflict and interviewed dozens of players over the course of nine months. Their reporting took them from wild horse roundups and ranches in the high desert mountains of eastern Nevada to the plains of the Midwest where thousands of captured mustangs are living out their lives in tall-grass prairies and on the taxpayers’ dime to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. Free Bonus book: Convict Cowboys: Taming Wild Mustangs, Finding Redemption is included in its entirety in this ebook.
