Ranchland: Wagonhound - Anouk Masson Krantz (Hardcover)
Wagonhound is a historic working ranch spanning over 300,000 acres in Wyoming, where the elevation ranges from 5,000 feet to 9,000 feet; where talented, strong, and steady quarter horses supplied by the ranch-owned remuda are required to help the cowboys manage the herds in a spectacularly rugged terrain.
Catherine and Art Nicholas, who took the reins of the historic ranch in 1999, take the stewardship of the land very seriously - their vision has been to honour tradition, preserve the land, which is steeped in history, and return it to a pristine condition. In Ranchland: Wagonhound, Anouk Krantz's beautiful photography reveals the daily and seasonal rhythms of the ranch and the daily lives of its men and women cowboys, whose long hard days - starting in the dark and finishing in the dark - involve everything from cattle driving to branding to training the best quarter horses in the country and more.
Set in a stunning large-format book, these photographs and the stories offer an inspiring new perspective into today's cowboy/ranching culture and land stewardship of the American West.
