Fans of author David Martin Anderson can get up close and personal with the author on Saturday, July 2, at Barnes and Noble when he will sign copies of The Last Good Horse.
The novel tells the story of Billy, a young man working in a Montana slaughterhouse in 1939--except this is a slaughterhouse for wild horses. In 1914 there were 4 million wild horses. Today, there are 100,000.
Aside from the history lesson, Anderson also crafts a good tale. At a little more than 200 pages, most of his Amazon reviewers wished the experience had lasted longer. Somebody even asked for a sequel.
According to the book's website, as research for the story, Anderson "journeyed to Montana's Pryor Mountain to study the last of the Spanish jennets still roaming free but soon to become extinct."[ Video is no longer available. ]
