Wild Wyoming Book Discussion: In A Land of Awe and Unbroken Spirit
- Date(s): Monday, April 1st 2024
- Time: 6 p.m.
Wild Wyoming is the theme for the winter book discussion series which features four books about wildlife in Wyoming. Tina Kitras-Seaman returns to lead the series.
In A Land of Awe: Finding Reverence in the Search for Wild Horses by Chad Hanson will be featured along with Unbroken Spirit: the Wild Horse in the American Landscape. The wild horses of the America West occupy a special place in the collective American consciousness. They symbolize much that has been lost to progress — wide open spaces, self-sufficiency, and a sense of unabridged freedom. Unbroken Spirit explores the history of the wild horse in the West—from the extinction and reintroduction of the horse to the Americas and the horse’s profound influence on Native America, to today’s challenge of managing non-native wildlife. The book provides a compelling view of the wild horse within the context of natural history and western American culture. This discussion will be held on Monday, April 1 at 6 p.m. Author Chad Hanson will visit the library on Wednesday, April 17 and Wild and Free: The Mustangs of the McCullough Peaks will be on display at the library throughout the month of May.
