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."

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.
