about

A young ranch woman rides into the mountains searching for her missing horses. Warned not to ride into the rugged country known as the DEVIL’S MAZE, she discovers a secret entrance through seemingly impassable cliffs and enters the dangerous badlands. She finds sign of her lost mares and rides deeper and deeper into the treacherous country until she is hopelessly lost.
A wild, black STALLION has stolen her mares and retreated to the safety of the Devil’s Maze. He is the last descendant of a band of wild mustangs whose numbers were decimated by early ranchers. The fierce stallion secretly follows JEAN as she nears the sanctuary where he has hidden the mares. He attacks Jean and her saddle horse, JASPER, as they cross a narrow trail high above a rocky gorge. Her horse is killed when they fall from the cliff during the battle. She and the wild stallion survive the fall into a rocky hollow. Trapped by sheer cliffs ringing the small meadow, Jean helps the fierce stallion survive his injuries.
The wild mustang lies helpless and allows her to touch and care for him. He recovers and bonds to the young woman as they share the small hollow where they are trapped. She is unaware her DAD and GRANDAD fought and killed this stallion’s dam and sire in a terrifying confrontation twenty years before. The ordeal left her father with a paranoid fear of the Devil’s Maze and the wild horses that once inhabited the chaotic land of dead-end canyons and steep cliffs.
Jean recovers the lost mares and together they follow the injured stallion back to the secret cave that will lead them out of the Maze to the trail home.
A dramatic ending occurs when Jean and the horses finally near the cave. Searchers have discovered the secret cave leading into the Maze. They see the lost procession returning and mistakenly believe the black stallion is preparing to attack Jean and her runaway horses. GRAMPS recognizes the wild stallion as the colt he released twenty years before after he killed the colt’s sire and dam when they attacked his son. He decides to shoot the stallion to save his granddaughter.
Joy turns to horror when Jean realizes her rescuers are trying to kill the magnificent stallion she has come to love. Jean recklessly throws caution aside in an effort to save the wild mustang in the frightening last chapter of “Lost Mountain Stallion”.
