Wind Horses of Mongolia: Lessons on Freedom, by Erika Connor

8" x 8", 140 p., Travel writings and art book with paintings by the author.

"I slipped across the grasses, becoming trees and rocks. Sometimes, they passed so close I could have reached out my hand to skim their hides, the ribs, the last of their tattered winter coats."

"What was it like to live in a place of wind? I learned things I wouldn’t otherwise have known. The takhi horses lost their freedom once and found it again, retracing an ancient memory. As the last of the old horses born in Holland died off, the way was open for the wild born."
