Blackface is a young mustang born to a dominant stallion and a golden palomino mare who was stranded in the desert when her transporter died in an accident. This book chronicles Blackface's life growing up in the desert. As a foal, he causes a lot of mischief. By the time he is a few years old, he and his pinto playmate are kicked out of the herd, and must learn to survive in the harsh environment own their own. Eventually, Blackface and the pinto steal fillies and create a herd of their own. But how long can they survive without their father's choice feeding grounds, which leaves them with no option but to encroach on man's land?
