Great Ranches of Today's Wild West

A Horseman's Photographic Journey Across the American West

In this beautiful collection, veteran travel writer Mark Bedor takes readers on a journey through twenty of the great ranches of today’s Wild West. With over 200 stunning full-color photographs, reading Great Ranches of Today’s Wild West is almost as good as being there. Take a horseback ride through the snowy woods at Vista Verde Ranch in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, or follow in the footsteps of Butch Cassidy on the Outlaw Trail at Utah’s Tavaputs Ranch—it’s all just another part of the American ranch experience.
