For hundreds of years, generations of wild mustangs have roamed large parts of the western United States. Many of these magnificent animals can live their entire lives without ever seeing a single human being. Being completely self-sufficient, they inhabit the wilderness in groups, living together peacefully and posing no threat to any of the other animals with which they share the land.
Through knowledge that has been passed down to them from their ancestors, these horses are masters of survival and know what things to fear and how to protect themselves from those dangers.
This is the story of a special horse. His life begins much the same as the other young horses in his group, but will turn out to be much different. Through no fault of his own, he is separated from everything he has come to know and thrown into an entirely different way of life. Although his world changes drastically, his adventures continue until he finds himself in the unexpected position to repay a kindness that was once shown to him.
Friendship can sometimes be found in the least likely forms, in the most difficult times.

Meeting of the Mustangs by Cathy Kennedy is almost like that of White Fang and Call of the Wild. The tale instantly sweeps readers into a young horse’s perspective. Everything is seen and analyzed through the animal’s eyes. I enjoyed reading this adventure story. The journey was challenging but good. The plot is one that will melt every reader’s heart. Animals are pure and innocent and when facing dangers by both the wild and by cruel human beings we want to jump in and rescue the animal. But somehow everything works out…if nature allows it to happen. The wild is an extraordinary place. One that captivates all. I found myself intrigued, about the black colt and his journey. Overall, this was a quick and entertaining read. I recommend it to all animal lovers.
