In A Land of Awe

Finding Reverence in the Search for Wild Horses

Wednesday, April 17 – 6 p.m.

Niobrara County Library

Out on the edges of our frantic twenty-first-century nation, bands of wild horses stand nestled together, calmly nuzzling each other to maintain the bonds of family. Through the lens of the wild mustang, Chad Hanson gives us new ways to see and meaningfully engage our world as we enter new considerations about how we understand animals and our landscapes, our history, and ourselves.

  Hanson divides his time between Casper, Wyoming and the Red Feather Lakes region of Colorado. He teaches in the areas of sociology and religion at Casper College, he is a member of the ​Higher Learning Commission’s (HLC) Peer Review Corps, and he has served as a partner in the National Endowment for the Humanities’ research program. Visit his website: for more information.
