Ginger Kathrens continues the saga of the wild horses of the Arrowheads in Cloud’s Legacy, a companion volume to PBS’s NATURE program. An award-winning wildlife documentary filmmaker, Kathryns is passionate about the plight of wild horses in North America, and it is with great joy that she watches the cast of Cloud’s Legacy run and interact freely on America’s wide open spaces. Her great story-telling abilities are beautifully enhanced by the exciting color photography that adorns each chapter of this handsome volume. The cast of characters in this saga has expanded beyond the first Cloud documentary to include over thirty different horses (all of which are listed in the appendix of the book). The story is told in 22 engaging chapters that follow Cloud and his growing family through their real-life adventures in the Rocky Mountains. Kathrens’s documentaries about Cloud, his cohorts, and family won the CINE Golden Eagle Awards, Chicago International Television Competition, U.S. International Film and Video Festival, and the WorldFest Houston International Film Festival.

From the Publisher:

"Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies will appeal to teenage girls everywhere who love horses and want to know everything about them. The book shows readers what life is truly like for the wild Mustang and its plight." - Moira C. Harris, Editor, Horse Illustrated

This companion book to the one-hour television documentary of the same name premiering on PBS's NATURE series is based on the magical true story of a wild stallion growing up in the Rockies.

Wild horses. Symbols of freedom and mystery. But not until Ginger Kathrens ventured into an isolated corner of the Rocky Mountains have we had the opportunity for such an intimate glimpse into the private lives of these magnificent animals. Their story unfolds as we follow Cloud, the remarkable light-colored horse, from fragile newborn foal to five-year-old stallion. We find out how family bands are formed, how foals learn the rules of wild horse society, how bachelors fight to try to win mares, and how stallions protect their families. The drama comes alive with Ginger's words and photographs. We come to know the horses as if they were our friends. Breathtaking scenery, rugged terrain, and unpredictable weather remind us of how harsh yet fulfilling life can be for the wild horses. Find out what happens when Cloud is captured in a government roundup and where he disappears to every winter. Can Cloud win a mare so he can start his own band and follow in the footsteps of his father, Raven ? Written and photographed by Ginger Kathrens, who is also the producer and cinematographer of the NATURE documentary of the same title, Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies is sure to be a winner with anyone who is lured by the majesty and spirit of the wild horse.
