Stories And Images Of What The Horse Has Done For Us
An Illustrated History of Okanagan Ranching and Rodeo
This book is a photo journal of the special relationship between the horse and the Okanagan people. Included are stories from Okanagan oral tradition, Okanagan Elders' statements, and stories about the people and events depicted in the photographs. Photographs date from the late 1800s to the 1990s; most date from the first half of the twentieth century. All photos are from Okanagan collections. With the exception of some rodeo photographs, virtually all pictures were taken through the lenses of cameras operated by Okanagan Nation members.
