Wild horses endure thanks to the likes of old-time cowboy Dayton O. Hyde. In the 1980's, he witnessed some of America's surviving wild mustangs being rounded up and sent to slaughter; it pulled at his heart, and he vowed to do something about it. In 1988, he established The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary to protect these majestic horses. In All the Wild Horses, Dayton shares his personal stories and colorful insights on the natural history, behavior, spirit and survival of these animals.
