"Carol Walker's love of wild horses is evident. The collection of masterful photographs in Wild Hoofbeats, along with the insightful and personal account of her experiences, gives us a poignant glimpse into the secret and oftentimes tragic world of America's wild horses. Through her sincere commitment and dedication, Carol is helping to bridge a very important gap between two worlds." -- Tony Stromberg, author of Spirit Horses "This lovely coffee table book illustrates the plight of wild horse herds throughout Western America and focusing on the Southwestern corner of Wyoming. There is excellent material for everyone interested in the subject. The combination of beautiful pictures and cogent writing makes this coffee table book a fascinating read." -- Heartland Reviews "With an attachment to her subjects that is reminiscent of Jane Goodall's famous studies, Carol invites us to meet and care for the "families" she became a part of. Carol Walker, through this elegant "documentary," reminds us why wild horses are the symbol of America's free spirit. She also reminds us that these horses and the lands they roam are part of the public domain. They belong to us and Carol urges us to take better care of what is ours." -- Reins Magazine "Walker has a passion for the future of these wild horses that are decreasing in numbers in the US. She uses amazing photographs and her own experiences to tell their story. Walker talks about the land mismanagement and suggestions for future protection from large wild horse removals, which continue to threaten an already declining population. We are encouraged, as US citizens, to stand up and make a difference for these true symbols of the American west heritage and for the sake of the animals themselves." -- Apogee Photo Magazine
