Travel the world of horses, with two major American artists as your guides.

Horses and humans have a long history together, from wild steppe to farm field to battlefield, from rodeo arena to backyard. In Horses, Jay Dusard and Thomas McGuane illuminate the special bond that grows between riders and mounts. Their book is a memorable collaboration between two masters: Dusard offers his insight in words as well as in his extraordinary photography, McGuane in a pair of essays.

"Those who love horses are impelled by an ever-receding vision, some enchanted transformation through which the horse and the rider become a third, much greater thing," writes McGuane, also an acclaimed novelist and horseman. More than words, more than pictures, this slim, beautiful book is also a "third thing."

"To some people," McGuane observes, "horses have wings." Comic, exquisite, gritty, and wiseHorses flies on wings of its own. 45 b/w and color photos.
