Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.”

Holistic Horse

 

“An intimate glimpse into the routines and relationships of one wild herd in the high desert and semi-alpine slopes between Wyoming and Montana.  The breathtaking, full-color photos speak volumes.”

Trail Rider Magazine

 

“This is [an] extraordinary photographic journal.”

Advance Magazine

 

“[Pomeranz’s] Montana-sized heart shines through in the images that make up this lush photo essay.”

The Gaited Horse 

From the Inside Flap

Born Free and Running Wild

Along the state line between Montana and Wyoming, in a landscape of high desert, rocky ridges, and semi-alpine slopes, live the Pryor Mountain Mustangs -- bands of wild horses descended from the original Spanish steeds brought over by the Conquistadores. These wild descendants of equine royalty browse, roam, fight, and mate as they always have.

Drawn to the unspoiled glory of their existence, photographer Lynne Pomeranz spent two years among the Pryor Mountain Mustangs, watching their routines, observing their complex relationships, and capturing in photographs the very essence of their wildness. Her photographic journal tells a story of courage, resilience, and freedom that speaks eloquently to the human spirit.

Witness the dramatic struggles between stallions as they vie for supremacy, the tender bonds between mares and their offspring, and the unlikely friendships that form among bachelors young and old. To experience even a small part of their world is to share a precious part of nature's nobility, still unaltered by human will."

I have never read a book like this....where the pictures and the text are SO linked and pertinent to each other. Each word of each sentence flows so evenly and beautifully. The photos were exquisite and were full of impact. The story of horses in the wild...living the way God meant for them.....is SO dramatic and tragic at the same time. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to observe the Pryor Mountain Mustang's daily life myself. This is also a story of how people and politics, past and present, have done such a horrible job in preserving our heritage..... as illustrated with these wonderful, wild and ancient horses. Luckily, there are a few caring people, like the author Lynne Pomeranz, who are able to open the eyes of other caring people with books such as this one.

While first perusing and then going back to carefully read this incredible pictoral essay of these magnificent animals, I felt awe and respect for both the animals and their resilience in nature.

The photos evoked in me curiousity and want to see these animals, but also tremendous admiration for the sensitive work of Photographer Lynner Pomeranz. For in her gentle way, we see the texture, color and beauty and the plight of one of the last wild herds of stallions. To see the rugged environment in which these animals survive, brings about a connection with the animals, the land, and the spirit of the horses captured through the lens of this photographer.

The text is supportive and helped me to understand the plight of these horses. So many times the text can get in the way of the photos, but in this case it was interesting and informative.

A truly amazing book.

AMONG WILD HORSES: A PORTRAIT OF THE PRYOR MOUNTAIN MUSTANGS is a gorgeous image-laden photography book from an art photography who spent two years tracking and photographing the Pryor Mountain Mustangs. Her full-page, full color photos of these wild horses in nature are unique and gorgeous: observations of their special challenges and actions accompany the visual treat.

Very nice pictures and such a touching story. I gave this as a gift to a friend and it inspired her to donate to a fund to support wild horses in America.
