Overview

Don't Fence Me In is a collection of photographs evoking the feeling of the West through images of this incredibly beautiful and rugged landscape, its flora, horses, and cattle. This book depicts the cowboy at work and at play, at sunrise, and sunset, in all kinds of weather.
These photographs were taken during the past decade in ten western states: Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Texas, Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico, and California. I photographed cowboys who are living the traditions of the Old West; folks who live the life of a cowboy and strive to preserve the heritage handed down to them. Whether they are working on their own ranch, or on someone else's spread, these men take pride in their gear, their hordes, and the land they care for.
As he did for Cowboy Gear, Scott Preston researched old cowboy poetry to accompany many of the photographs in this book. Jack Goddard contributed a story about the weather which illustrates both the beauty and fury of nature and how it shapes the spirit of the West.
There are interviews with cowboys, short stories about winter in the high country, the western horse, and riding for the brand, all of which are accented by spectacular photographs and illustrations.
