"The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs" (Encore presentation.)

Aired on Wednesday, July 23rd.

On this edition of ST, we listen back to a fine interview that first aired in March of this year with H. Alan Day, who's the younger brother of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
