Last October, Karen Sussman traveled to Reno, Nevada, to visit the grave of “Wild Horse Annie.” Velma Johnson, who died in 1977, was responsible, along with school children around the world, for saving wild horses on government lands in the West.

Her enemies called her Wild Horse Annie, a mild but denigrating term. Velma turned it into a rallying cry and adopted the moniker when she testified before the U.S. Congress and got the first wild horse protection law passed. No longer could profiteers, with the collusion of corrupt government officials, round up wild horses on federal land with helicopters to sell them for slaughter.
