KIRKUS REVIEW

Arizona and a small ranch, the Circle Y, make a tumbleweed and canyon studded background for a better than average man versus horse tryst in that old familiar vein- the attempt to capture an elusive, almost legendary wild horse leader. Young McCarthy and the grizzled half-Indian, Red Saunders are principal paragons of good among the plain talking, country combing cowboys hired by the Circle Y's new owner, Hudson - a rash dude from Chicago, to track down the fleet-as-the wind Palomino and his band of seven hundred mustangs. After some pretty dramatic skirmishes in the three-way battle, in which Hudson learns a few lessons, there's a final stampede trapping of the whole band in a box canyon. But the Palomino is mysteriously turned loose into the wilds where he belongs.
