‘Phantom Stallion’ author tries nonfiction

From a Sundance Books and Music news release

wild_at_heart_coverA reception to celebrate the publication of local author Terri Farley’s first work of non-fiction, Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them (Houghton-Mifflin-Harcourt, 2015) will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Sundance Books and Music Saturday, Oct. 3.

Mustangs have thrived for thousands of generations. But now they are under attack from people who see them as pests. The lucky ones are adopted. Some are sent to long-term holding pens; more and more are sold for slaughter. But courageous young people are trying to stop the round-ups and the senseless killings. They are standing up to the government and big business to save these American icons.

With eyewitness accounts, cutting-edge science and full-color photographs, Farley and Melissa Farlow invite readers into the world of mustangs in all its beauty and profile the young people leading the charge to keep horses wild and free. The book includes notes and sources, index, and glossary.

Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them is Farley’s first work of nonfiction. It has been chosen as a Junior Library Guild selection.

Farley is the best-selling author of the Phantom Stallion series for young readers and Seven Tears into the Sea, a contemporary Celtic fantasy nominated as a Young Adult Library Services Association best book. She was honored by the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame, and her books have sold more than two million copies in 28 countries. She is an advocate for the West’s wild horses and works with young people learning to make their voices heard.
