Overview

Join award-winning author and photographer Carol Walker as she tells the story, in words and photographs, of the wild horses of Adobe Town herd of Wyoming, and the dramatic fight to protect these magnificent and endangered animals.Protective. Dignified. Elegant and affectionate. Certainly beautiful. Above all else, loyal. These are the horses of Wyoming's famed Adobe Town herd, their stunning images caught in the wild by award-winning photographer Carol Walker.Especially remarkable are the snowcapped stallion that Walker thinks of as Bronze Warrior and his band of Appaloosa-marked mares and offspring. But their freedom was to be curtailed. In the fall of 2014, the Adobe Town horses were rounded up, their bands divided. Bronze Warrior and his sons were shipped to Colorado, their mares to a holding facility in Wyoming, and their young sent to Carson City, Nevada. Moved by the horse's strong family bonds in the wild, Walker joined with other advocates to intercede.This is the story, captured in Walker's signature dramatic images, of searching out, gathering together, and ultimately reuniting Bronze Warrior's extended family at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.Galloping to Freedom will engage your heart and forever change your view of America's wild horses.

Author Biography

Carol Walker is an author and photographer. Her books include Wild Hoofbeats: America's Vanishing Wild Horses, Horse Photography: The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers, and Mustangs: Wild Horses at the Heart of the American Legend. Her passion for photography started at an early age, with animals as her favorite subjects. She studied literature and photography as an undergraduate at Smith College. For the past thirty years, she has photographed wildlife all over the world. In 2000, Carol started her business, Living Images by Carol Walker, specializing in horse photography. Carol's images illuminate the relationship between horses and their people, as well showcase the beauty of horses with her stunning images of horses at liberty. She teaches equine photography workshops for amateur photographers and markets her fine art prints from her website as well as in several locations on the Front Range of Colorado. Carol's artwork and books have been honored with numerous awards. Carol has been photographing wild horses for over a decade. As she followed several herds in Wyoming, Colorado, and Montana, she became aware of how precarious their situation on public lands has become. Since then, she has dedicated herself to educating people with her photographs and stories about wild horses of the American West. She is one of the leading advocates for keeping America's wild horses wild and free on our public lands. Proceeds from the sales of Carol's artwork and books fund her efforts. Each year, Carol produces a calendar of her images to benefit the Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
