Last Chance Mustang is the story of Samson, a formerly free-roaming, still wild-at-heart American mustang that was plucked from his mountainous Nevada home and thrown into the domestic horse world where he was brutalized and victimized. After years of abuse, Samson had evolved into a hateful and hated, maladjusted beast until the day he found his way to a rural Illinois farm, an ill-equipped owner, and one last chance. Mitch Bornstein's task was to tame the violent beast whose best defense had become offense. He had twenty years of experience fixing unfixable horses, but Samson would be his greatest challenge. Through the pair's many struggles and countless battles, Samson would teach Mitch about the true power of hope, friendship, redemption and the inspiring mettle of the forever wild and free American mustang.

Mitchell Bornstein is an alum Illinois Institute of Technology.
The content in the book makes this: a one of a kind, best read experience I have enjoyed in a really long time. I encourage anyone, not just those that like animals to consider checking it out from the library.

It is amazing that the author, Bornstein, has survived all that abused horses have put him through. But he is persistent and resilient, to say the least. This is the story of his working with an abused mustang named Samson. I couldn't put it down, hoping for Samson to finally have a chance after the years of mistreatment from humans and the BLM. You'll cheer for Samson!
