Wild Hoofbeats

America’s Vanishing Wild Horses

Carol Walker

An emblem of the American West 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 Wyoming's Red Desert to witness one of the largest remaining wild herds in America. In passionate prose and stunning photographs both intimate and grand, Carol Walker convinces us to take the future of these elegant, exceptional animals to heart.

Carol Walker's passion for photography started at an early age, with animals as her favorite subjects. She studied literature and photography at Smith College, and continued after graduation to study portraiture and nature photography. For the past 28 years, she has photographed wildlife the world over; since becoming aware of the precarious situation of the wild horses, she has dedicated herself to educating people about them through her photographs and her stories. In her business, Living Images by Carol Walker, Walker specializes in horse photography, illuminating the relationship between horses and their people, as well showcasing horses ineffable beauty in stunning images of them at liberty. Her commercial work includes on-site horse portraiture, catalogue covers, and calendars; her fine art prints are available at her Living Images by Carol Walker website as well as in several galleries on the Front Range of Colorado.
