Book Description

Alongside the dramatic views of the Rocky Mountains lies a precarious ecosystem impacted by the industrial pressures of mining, forestry, ranching, and oil and gas extraction. Alberta’s wild horse herds can be found roaming these eastern slopes, existing in a liminal space as both wild animal and the domesticated companion we have shared so much of our history with. A Road Map for Finding Wild Horses is written as a response to the intersections of human, animal, and land that occur while exploring this landscape as a woman alone. The horses offer a reflection on our relationship with nature, particularly now as we witness the impending effects of a climate crisis.
