It's been said

that there are hundreds,

if not thousands of wild mustangs

roaming the western United States,

living symbols of the West

and its pioneer spirit.

The American mustang in particular

is a beautiful, natural,

and, to me, mysterious creature.

In recent years, though,

the most talked about,

most interesting, most intriguing

were the stories

of the wild Black Stallion.

Some said he was the direct

descendant of the Arabians

the Conquistadors

had brought to the New World.

Others insisted he was a ghost horse

that no one could see or hear

but always came

to raid local herds for the mares

and then lead them away in the night.

I believe he was really Dark Cloud,

the legendary Derby winner

that disappeared

when the Union Pacific Flyer

derailed in eastern Nevada.

Whoever he was really,

The Great Horse

was just The Wild Stallion to us.

In the summer

I learned the truth about him,

I also learned the truth

about a lot of things, including me.

I lived in Cleveland, Ohio with my dad.

We'd been on our own

since Mama died.

I know losing her was hard on me,

but what I didn't realize then

was how hard it had been for him.

Yeah, taking pictures

is all I have to do.

Why can't you stay with me?

I wasn't invited. You were.

Besides, there's horses,

swimming, hiking...

There's a million things to do.

You'll like Matty, too.

Just because

she's your old girlfriend?

That's ancient history, pumpkin.

That was 25 years ago.

Listen, she did say that there was

a girl your age... built-in friend.

Oh, great. A built-in friend

from Nowhere, Nevada.

Nowhere, Utah.

She'll probably think

I'm a stuck-up city slicker.

Well, you'll just have

to prove her wrong, won't you?


[Motor revs]

- Ready?

- Yeah.

It seemed to me

that all he ever did was work,

and I know now that was

because it was the only way

he could keep his mind off losing her.

I don't blame him.

He didn't know what else to do.

And if I'd been him, I wouldn't either.

One of the best things Mama

gave me was the love of photography.

She's the one who first told me

about the wild horses out West,

and more than anything,

I wanted to capture them on film.

I thought it

would never happen, but after...

... well, when Mama was gone,

Dad finally said he'd take me.

This is the Nebo Mountain Range,

part timber, part sagebrush,

and all wild-horse country.

And right in the middle of it

is the Bear Mountain Ranch,

and that's where I

was going to spend the next month.

That's C.J.

She was always riding.

She belonged to the local rodeo club,

and I'm pretty sure she'd never

even visited a big city before.

If you would have told me

the first day

that she would become

my best friend,

I would have said you were crazy.

That's Alvin Niedermeyer.

He was the ranch's cook.

Those two were brothers,

Dallas and Ty Brody.

Look at them strawberries.

I'm the strawberry fairy.

- Can we have some?

- No.

Why don't you go

and find something to mulch?

That was also the day

Matty told CJ I was coming.

Hard to believe she and my dad

were... well, liked each other.

Hi, Matty.

- Kyle said you called.

- I did. I need your help.

- What for?

- Not what... who.


A girl about your age.

Her name is Hannah Mills.

What about her?

Well, she's coming here

for part of the summer.

- I need you to look after her.

- Me? Why?

City girl.

She's coming here

to take photographs

for a project or something.

Her father's

an old college friend of mine.

Going out of the country on business,

asked me to look after her for awhile.
