Wind River Wilderness
Edited by Ronald Chilcote

One of our most ambitious projects to date features a stunning compilation of photographs and essays depicting the pristine wilderness environment of the Wind River area in Wyoming. Featuring work from renowned photographers and writers as well as local environmentalists, Wind River Wilderness celebrates the natural, and yet fragile, beauty of a region that has, until recently, rarely been showcased.

The Wind River Wilderness is a testament to one of the most magnificent, diverse, and pristine wilderness environments in the continental United States. A stunningly beautiful book of photographs and essays in celebration of the Wind River area of Wyoming, the book features the work of regional and internationally renowned photographers, including Henry Holdsworth, Robert Ketchum, Tom Mangelsen, David Muench, Fred Pflughoft, and Jeff Vanuga.

Although primarily a book of photographic images, Gretel Ehrlich, whose Solace of Open Spaces has become a classic, has written an overview essay. It is also interspersed with seven thematic essays written by people recognized for their contributions to literature as well as their many years of experience in the area: Meredith Taylor on wildlife and resources, C.L. Rawlins on the mountain ranges, Tucker Smith on the artistic legacy, Erik Molvar on the Red Desert, Dennis Sun Rhodes on the Native American legacy, Florence Rose Shepard on the historical context, and Ronald Frost on the geology of the area.

In addition, some of the writers and photographers, along with others who live in and care deeply about the area, have written testimonial statements expressing their love and concern for the future of this important and threatened natural environment.

“The beautiful layout and bright, large pictures make Wind River Wilderness an excellent choice for a coffee table book, drawing readers attention to the replication of the breathtaking views in our backyards; the text draws the reader into greater appreciation of the area and stronger realization of the need to protect it.”

“The best writing and photography in the book are not ponderous studies of the majestic mountains, but rather capture the Winds as dynamic environments that do not exist apart from life but in conjunction with it.”

“From wildlife, to craggy peaks, to gorgeous lakes, to Red Desert austerity, to wide-angle vistas, every picture is evocative and inspiring… Many of us hold a piece of the Winds in our hearts and minds. Wind River Wilderness gives us a chance to have a piece of the Winds on our bedside tables.”
