About the author (1993)

Gaydell Collier lives on a ranch in the Black Hills near Sundance, Wyoming. She co-authored three books on horses and horsemanship for Doubleday and co-edited three collections of women's writing for Houghton-Mifflin, including Leaning Into the Wind. Her essays, articles and poetry have appeared in numerous anthologies and publications. She won the 2004 Wyoming Governor's Arts Award for Literature. In Gaydell's own words.."I loved books from before I was born, and began writing (well, scribbling) as soon as I could hold a crayon. One thing led to another, and I progressed to pencil, typewriter, and computer, bought too many books, became a librarian, and added more of my own scribbles to the world. Reading, writing, ranching. Dogs and horses. The land. That's it in a nutshell.
