“Cowboys & Critters” will take the reader beyond the corrals and the beloved horses and the assortment of herding and protective working dogs, to the critters that share a rancher’s world. These creatures wander through ranchers’ lives—ranchers who are the lucky ones.
Page after page of the color-filled volume contains 186 wildlife and candid ranch life photos by 65 photographers, some of the West’s best, including: Larry Angier, Todd Klassy, Diane McAllister, Larry Turner, Cynthia Baldauf and Skye Clark.
Essays on the symbiotic relationship between ranchers, farmers and wildlife were contributed by 11 writers who can also claim a string of awards and accomplishments, including Carolyn Dufurrena, Linda M. Hasselstrom, Vess Quinlan, Bill Jones and Robert Laxalt.
The collection is intended to reflect a unique way of life.
