I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
A black colt is born into a band of wild mustangs and soon learns that life can often be difficult. Follow his story as he goes from a free spirit to being captured for profit, and find out how one man gains the trust and extreme loyalty of a very special horse.
Fans of the popular Disney movie Spirit would absolutely love this story of a black colt as he goes through life as a free stallion across the wilds of the U.S.
The storyline is adventurous and will certainly keep the reader’s attention. The chapters are small enough to entertain younger readers with small attention spans but contain a good amount of substance to entertain the older audience. Though the intended audience is young teens and tweens, some of the content may be too emotional for the younger animal lovers. To prevent spoilers, I won’t say anything else, however this book can be equally as emotional as the referenced Spirit.
Overall, Meeting of the Mustangs is an excellently written book and I recommend it to horse lovers between the ages 10 and 14. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
