"Wild Horse Mesa" is one of Grey's "lesser" books, but still an enjoyable read. It's a bit of a redo of the distinctly downbeat horse story, "Wildfire." In the latter book, the horse of the title meets a sad end, and the obligatory romantic couple, though together, are in a state of post-traumatic stress--which didn't exist in the early twentieth century. (wink!)

In "Wild Horse Mesa," the tone is distinctly more upbeat, not that this tale doesn't have some gut-wrenching moments. The wild stallion
Here's how I got the book...

I think this is the first ever Zane Grey I've read. I started it out of desperation while sitting at a Swap Meet (forgot my book), and my husband had a box of Zane Grey's for sale.
