By Carol J. Walker
Foreword by Ginger Kathrens
“Dust boils up off the prairie. In a land that seems empty of all but sagebrush, wisps of grass, dirt and sun…moving shapes begin to take form: white blazes, flashing eyes, manes flying and tails waving, the occasional sharp hoof. There is sound too, a gradually growing dull thunder that vibrates the ground like an enduring earthquake. Soon dust, shapes, and sounds resolve themselves into running horses—a huge number of running horses.”
– from the introduction to Wild Hoofbeats
An emblem of the American West and once numbering in the millions, the wild horse is considered by some today as a resource to be exploited or a pest to be eliminated. Now the wild horse is on the verge of being removed entirely from our nation’s public lands. Wild Hoofbeats takes us deep into “Adobe Town” in Wyoming’s Red Desert and one of the largest remaining wild herds in America. In passionate prose, but above all in stunning photographs that are both intimate and grand, Carol Walker convinces us to take the future of these elegant, exceptional animals to heart.

What others are saying about Wild Hoofbeats:
“Carol Walker’s love of wild horses is evident. The collection of masterful photographs in Wild Hoofbeats, along with the insightful and personal account of her experiences, gives us a poignant glimpse into the secret and oftentimes tragic wold of America’a wild horses. Through her sincere commitment and dedication, Carol is helping to bridge a very important gap between two worlds.
–Tony Stromberg, author of Spirit Horses
“There is nothing more important than preserving what is left of our open spaces,
natural resources and wildlife species. It is long overdue that America’s wild horses are
recognized as a native wildlife species and claim their rightful home on the American
landscape. The dedicated and passionate work of Carol Walker gives an overdue and
much needed voice to these magnificent and ancient creatures.”

“This book is an excellent read both for the novice and expert wild horse enthusiast. Ms. Walker captures the complex wild horse issue completely from wild horse behaviors to BLM’s mismanagement and simplifies it for all readers. This book is a wake up call to American citizens to take action to stop the massive removals of an already declining wild horse population in our country. The wild horses of our country represent our American heritage as symbols of freedom and the last living icons of the old West but beyond the symbolism, they are truly a magnificent wildlife species. America’s wild horses are stronger, healthier, extremely intelligent and there is almost no inbreeding in the herds leaving these animals as the “extraordinary horse” compared to their domestic counterparts. Their ability to survive at all odds should be heralded and not destroyed. ”
