Among Wild Horses: A Portrait of the Pryor Mountain Mustangsby Lynne Pomeranz
Synopses & Reviews
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.
