Description


Gerry Spence is best known as an undefeated trail lawyer and a rugged individualist whose public pronouncements ring with the authority of common sense and moral vision. But like the Wyoming in which he grew to manhood, he has many facets. A lifelong photographer and poet, he now turns his attention to his native state to share the marvels and mysteries he finds in the landscape and among the people.

Spence's Wyoming is a land fast disappearing, a land of pioneers and poor framers, of cowboys and mountain men and the strong women who helped settle the land. It is a place of extraordinary landscapes that seem to feel the breath of God, of mountains that inspire awe, of ancient trees whose figures bring true nobility to the face of the earth.

Captured in stunning photographs, gorgeously reproduced in duotone, and accompanied by his poetry, which the author reads in the accompanying CD, Gerry Spence's Wyoming brings us a vision of the land that only love and intimate knowledge could produce.
