H. ALAN DAY. The Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs. University of Nebraska Press. Hardcover, 264 pages, $24.95, www.nebraskapress.unl.edu.

Those who don’t know horses will find this book an engaging introduction. Readers who do will find themselves nodding in understanding page after page. H. Alan Day chronicles the establishment of the first government-sponsored sanctuary for unadoptable wild horses at his Mustang Meadows Ranch in South Dakota. Along the way, he relates a lifetime of experience with horses on his family’s Lazy B Ranch in Arizona and New Mexico. The result is an enjoyable, informative look at the world through a horseback cowboy’s eyes.
