The fight to stop the BLM from its plan to eradicate wild horses from private 
n 2004, I fell in love with a gentle, battle-scarred grey stallion and his small, 
 family. He ran right up to me and I waited, not knowing that this encounter 
would change my life forever. His filly came up next to her father and it looked 
as though she grinned at me. I had to keep coming back to see them, 
learn more about their lives, and photograph them as they as they are best portrayed, 
wild and free, at home in the dry, dramatic and isolated landscape of the Red Desert. 
I wrote my first book, Wild Hoofbeats: America’s Vanishing Wild Horses to let people
know how magnificent these horses are, and that they deserve to live free.
