Anouk Krantz's newest work, Ranchland: Wagonhound, takes a deep dive into one spectacular working ranch in Wyoming.
Her stunning photographs provide an outsider's perspective into the American West spirit and its enduring strength that is alive and well in today's contemporary world.
The ranch was named after a creek which runs through the property, Wagonhound Creek, which received its name due to the number of wagons on the nearby Oregon Trail that, while crossing the creek, broke their hounds, the part of the wagon that connects the tongue and axle.
The Wagonhound owners took the reins of the historic ranch in 1999. The ranch works to honour and preserve the values and heritage of the American West, and return the land to a pristine condition, utilizing conservation methods to ensure a balance between the land, livestock, farming, and wildlife to steward the ranch into the future.
The book includes an inspirational and powerful foreword by worldwide celebrated Gretel Ehrlich as well as other heartfelt contributions by historians Jeremy M. Johnston, Don Reeves and a new poem written for this title by legendary Russell “Red” Steagall, plus many others.
