I really enjoyed looking at this book. The real stars are the horses. The photographer travels around the world photographing horses and does a wonderful job of capturing their spirit. The text is very light and not as interesting as the photographs. Any fan of Horses and photograph will enjoy this book. This book will make a wonderful gift.

This book was exactly what I expected-a book full of beautiful horse photography. I only had two minor quibbles with the book--the first is that the text that accompanied the photos was rather banal, and sometimes even silly. The second was that the photos all felt as if they were taken from a similar distance away from the animals, and this sameness began to make me less impressed with each individual photo as I saw it. I think if there had been a bit more variety--some extreme closeups juxtaposed with mid-distance and long-distance shots, I might have appreciated each and every beautiful image just a little bit more. But, if you like horses, I think you absolutely will enjoy looking at the pictures in this book. I received an advanced reading copy from the publishers via NetGalley. Thanks!
