Nova Bree Steele is on the run after witnessing a murder in San Francisco. She hitchhikes to a ranch in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in search of Joe Crawford, a good man she heard could help her.
Modern-day cowboy, Luke Barrett rescues a rare Curly Sulphur Mustang from poachers in Disappointment Valley, Colorado. He and Bree join the efforts of a doctor working to save the Curly Sulphur Mustang breed from extinction. Relationships are forged with strength and courage to find their purpose.
Their lives, and the life of a rare mustang collide in the crosshairs of greedy men and the San Francisco Syndicate. They must find common ground and learn to work together, or they won’t survive the pursuits of evil men.
Fictional based on actual events.
Sulphur Mustangs are some of the most enigmatic horses found in North America. Besides their natural beauty and grace, they may be one of the last strains of relatively pure hoses that the Spanish brough to North America 400 years ago. These horses are in danger of extinction. If the public is informed of their existence, their chances for long-term survival are greatly increased. I am hoping this book raises public awareness of this American treasure.
