H. Alan Day | The Horse Lover
7PM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19 H. Alan Day
: The Horse Lover H. Alan Day
, brother of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
and co-author of her bestselling memoir Lazy B
, presents his new book The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs.
Day already owned and managed two ranches — he needed a third about as much as he needed a permanent migraine. Or at least that's what he said every time a friend pestered him about an old ranch in South Dakota. But in spite of himself, he soon became the proud owner of 35,000 pristine grassy acres. The opportunity then dropped into his lap to establish a sanctuary for unadoptable wild horses previously warehoused by the Bureau of Land Management. After Day successfully lobbied Congress, those South Dakota acres became Mustang Meadows Ranch, the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary established in the United States. The Horse Lover is Day's personal history of the sanctuary's surprises and pleasures — and its plentiful dangers, frustrations, and heartbreak. He weaves together recollections of training fifteen hundred wild horses, his cowboying adventures astride some the best, and the lessons they all taught him about loyalty, perseverance, and hope."It is impossible to see a herd of wild horses running free without feeling a surge of excitement and enthusiasm for their vigor, power, and beauty. To watch them run with their manes and tails flying in the wind is to experience a sense of the ultimate freedom of motion." —From the foreword by Sandra Day O'Connor, former U.S. Supreme Court justice ABOUT THE AUTHOR H. Alan Day was the owner of Mustang Meadows Ranch near St. Francis, South Dakota; Rex Ranch near Whitman, Nebraska; and Lazy B Ranch in southern Arizona. With his sister, Sandra Day O'Connor, he coauthored Lazy B: Growing Up on a Cattle Ranch in the American Southwest.

Sandra Day O'Connor
discusses Lazy B: Growing Up on a Cattle Ranch in the American Southwest
What was it in Sandra Day O'Connor's background and early life that helped make her the woman she is today-the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and one of the most powerful women in America? In this beautiful, illuminating, and unusual book, Sandra Day O'Connor, with her brother, Alan, tells the story of the Day family and of growing up on the harsh yet beautiful land of the Lazy B Ranch in Arizona. Laced throughout these stories about three generations of the Day family, and everyday life on the Lazy B, are the lessons Sandra and Alan learned about the world, about people, self-reliance, and survival, and the reader will learn how the values of the Lazy B shaped them and their lives. Sandra's grandfather first put some cattle on open grazing land in 1886, and the Lazy B developed and continued to prosper as Sandra's parents, who eloped and then lived on the Lazy B all their lives, carved out a frugal and happy life for themselves and their three children on the rugged frontier. As you read about the daily adventures, the cattle drives and roundups, the cowboys and horses, the continual praying for rain and fixing of windmills, the values instilled by a self-reliant way of life, you see how Sandra Day O'Connor grew up. This fascinating glimpse of life in the American Southwest in the last century recounts an interesting time in our history, and gives us an enduring portrait of an independent young woman on the brink of becoming one of the most prominent figures in America today. from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
