She looks to be in a pretty big paddock. Is there any way you can corral her into a roundpen or something similar to work with her in? How old is she?
I know you said she is unhandled but is she halter broke? Asking because of her wearing one in the picture.

No , Once I Got Her In The Trailer I Managed To Get That On Her , It Wasn''t Pretty . She Wont Be Caught , Petted , Groomed , Lead . Nothing.

I would put her in a smaller corral and get a long lead rope on that halter. Then I would go out every day and drag her around. Put a little pressure on the lead and wait until she steps and release. You will have to pull at 45 degree angles to get her to take a step at first. Once you can lead her then you can work your way up the rope and pet her.

Here is a video that I watched a few weeks ago.
It's for the Mustang Makeover. Ranger is a completely untouched mustang. I do not advice you try this unless you know what you are doing though.

I would start a little slower. Putting her in a smaller pen is a good idea, but I would let her get used to your presence and being near before I started pulling on her with a lead. Spend some time leaning on the fence talking to her, find a treat she likes and even if she won't take it from your hand you can gradually bring it closer until she does. Put a chair in the pen if she isn't dangerous and read a book for a while. Try to keep it from being traumatic, I'd say she's been pretty scared for quite a while being trailered, haltered, and handled. If you have a good candidate let her see you with another horse, petting and grooming, it always seems to make them curious.

I don't have too much to add to this thread, but I just spent the best part of the day watching all of the 20 or so videos about the horse that ShutUpJoe linked the video to. It was really inspirational. Take a lazy day when you don't have anything going on, and watch all the vids, you will learn a ton, I did.
Edit thanks ShutUpJoe, but would you like to come over and help me do all the things I did not get done today? My house looks like a bomb went off! :)

Agreed that a much smaller pen is needed. Something where she cannot get away from you (and since she is unhandled, I suggest something tall enough that she cannot look over the top). If she can get her head over the top, she will do her dangdest to jump out. If she was mine, I would likely rope her with a soft rope and start from there. You need to have something on her that will get her to look at you instead of fleeing constantly. However, I would suggest that you find someone who has done that before to help you because it can get a bit dicey and dangerous sometimes. You might try Monty Roberts join up technique. It might work for you, I never had much success with it.
