The story chronicles the legendary activist, Velma Bronn Johnston, dubbed "Wild Horse Annie" for her crusade in the 1950's to end the slaughter and suffering of wild mustangs.
Velma Johnston became a leading animal rights activist in this country. Her dedicated quest to protect America's wild horses, a campaign she began with the nation's school children, culminated in the US Congress' passing of the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971. The bill became the law of the land, signed by then President Richard M. Nixon on December 15, 1971. Ms Johnston's legacy lives on.
