My wife and photographer extraordinaire, Mary Potts, has created an amazing book on an important, though under-explored, subject: The Horses of Greenfield Village. Huron River Press is the publisher, and Mary collaborated on the book with our friend, Pamela K. Smith, who wrote its highly informative text. Mary photographed -- in all four seasons -- the impressive Percheron and Morgan horses who live and work in the Village, and the results are spectacular, as seen in approximately 300 images.
Earlier today (April 30), Mary and Pamela were guests on the the The Craig Fahle Show, heard on WDET-FM in Detroit, and their engaging interview is found about 75% of the way into the podcast available on the radio station website. Check out this conversation.
The book is already being sold at The Henry Ford gift shops -- located in the Museum and in the Village -- and online. On June 9, there will be autographed copies of the book available at the venue's William Ford Barn, after which the book will be released nationally, including to Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Coingratulations to both Mary and Pamela!
