The Western horse has transcended divisions of race, culture, gender, and age to become an icon. Without it - and the stories it inspires - the West would be impoverished. While much has been written about cowboys and the West, no other anthology exists that focuses exclusively on the animal itself. Unbridled assembles some of the best Western horse stories ever written. The Western horse is seen and described from a variety of perspectives. These are the stories of ranchers, cowboys, soldiers, hunters, and many more. Some are well known; some waiting to be discovered. The unifying sentiment is their respect for and admiration of this most remarkable animal. This anthology includes 32 selections, spanning the traditional short story, reminiscence, folk tale, journalistic and historical sketch, and mythology.
