Casey’s Library- A Cowboy’s Guide to Great Literature (Part 3)

This month’s book features are both awesome coffee table books. They’re large and attractive and look great on display. Visitors will love flipping through the colorful pages and you might find yourself revisiting theses books time and time again. They make great gifts too. We received a signed copy of “In the Herd” as a gift from my aunt. It will be cherished and we plan to pass it down to a long legacy of horse lovers in our family.

Dust and Smoke-Tough Cowboys and Good Horses Photography by Rene A Heil

This book is 167 pages of “cool pictures”. The photography really captures the different styles of branding. Nothing describes the techniques and practices used on various ranches better than great pictures.

“I don’t care who you are- you can look at the same picture many times and you’ll notice something different each time.”


In the Herd- A Photographic Journey with the Chincoteague Ponies and Assateague Horses by Jayne M. Silberman

This book tells the story of the Chincoteague Ponies and Assateague Horses with the 157 pages of text and photographs. Not only the horses and ponies in their natural habitat in Maryland and Virginia, but regional wildlife and natural landscapes are pictured. The narrative shares the history of the animals and current practices used to manage the herds. This is the real story of the children’s book “Misty of Chincoteague”. Flip through the pages and immerse yourself in a true horse adventure as the horses play on the beach, swim the bay and even find new homes as part of the relocation and management program.
