CANA Foundation is very excited to announce the release of Galloping to Freedom: Saving the Adobe Town Appaloosas, the latest book by multiple-award winning author and photographer Carol J. WalkerGalloping to Freedom is equally suitable for coffee table browsers, fine art photography admirers, or the libraries of serious equine science students.

The story features Walker’s evocative photographs and poignant prose as she documents the store of rescuing the stallion she named Bronze Warrior and his band of mares and offspring from different BLM holding facilities following the infamously heartbreaking BLM 2014 Checkerboard Roundup in Wyoming. Like every satisfying animal story, the venture is not without difficulties and sorrows, but ultimately, this is a tale of triumph and joy as Bronze Warrior and his band are at last reunited in a place where they could live out their lives together, safe and undisturbed. Best of all, it is all true.

Galloping to Freedom should be considered a “must read” for every equine enthusiast and horse lover in the country. The photography is outstanding, the succinct captions and commentaries informed and informative, the entire book a masterpiece. Galloping to Freedom should be a part of every community and academic library collection for the enduring benefit and pleasure of their patrons — and perhaps inspire similar efforts in other parts of the country.”

— Midwest Book Review

“In close-ups and vast panoramas, she reveals the horses as both personal—with emotive faces and attitudes—and wild—galloping across vast western wilderness like veritable symbols of American freedom. Her written account is equally moving. She describes in detail following certain special horses—Bronze Warrior, Snowfall, and Diamond Girl—from freedom to containment. With stories and pictures, Galloping to Freedomcould be influential in helping to return these wild American animals to their natural habitat.”

— The US Review of Books

“If you love horses, or just love to see stunning photography of what true wild freeom looks like, then Galloping to Freedom is a must have. It would make an absolutely brilliant coffee table book, and a gift for any horse enthusiast.”

— Customer Review

“A book every horse lover should read — you’ll be mesmerized by the photos and story and quite thankful that there are people like Carol Walker working diligently to save the magnificent wild horses.”

— Feathered Quill Book Reviews

Galloping to Freedom is nothing short of beautiful from the story to the publication (coffee table size and format, high quality glossy pages) and of course, the photography. If you or anyone you know has a soft spot in their heart for the majesty of horses you or they will adore this book, plus it helps a good cause. Win/win as far as I’m concerned.”
