Life in the Saddle : Writings and Photographs
Life in the Saddle is a spirited and robust collection about life on the open ranges of the American West. Editor Gretel Ehrlich - essayist, naturalist, rancher, and horsewoman - has assembled ten essays by America's foremost western writers, to reveal unforgettable panoramas and entertaining close-ups of a rugged land and the people who meet it on its own terms. Here are living legends - cowboys, ranchers, trackers, and trailblazers - who expose the heart and soul of the country, speak to its harshness and loneliness, revel in its humor, and witness its honest beauty and power, all from the backs of their constant and loyal companions: their horses.Richly illustrated with sixty-five full-color images from leading western nature photographers, the essays here, combined with Ehrlich's own introductions to each selection, make this collection a most satisfying journey.
