Fine art photographer Lynne Pomeranz spent two years tracking and photographing the Pryor Mountain Mustangs, and the result is Among Wild Horses , an intimate study that gives readers a rare glimpse into the lives of these magnificent animals.
Pomeranz watched their routines, observed their complex relationships, and captured on film the very essence of their wildness. Her photographic journal is a story of courage, resilience, and freedom that speaks eloquently to the human spirit.
Through Pomeranz's lens, the reader gets an up-close, day-by-day glimpse into the social lives of the Pryor Mountain Mustangs, witnessing dramatic competitions between stallions, tender bonds between mares and their offspring, and joyful play of each spring's foals. Arresting full-color, panoramic spreads reveal the horses in their native environment. To experience even a small part of their world is to share a precious part of nature?s nobility.
Preserving these animals' wild habitat and way of life has become a life's work for a growing number of people who realize the immeasurable value of nature's real-life fairy tales, and a portion of the profits from Among Wild Horses will support the work of the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center in Lovell, Wyoming.
The Pryor Mountain Mustangs--and Among Wild Horses-- will claim a special place in the hearts of horse lovers and nature enthusiasts of all ages.
