As in Vavra's most popular books, all are alone and running free in glorious natural settings: a white Arabian in a sun-washed desert; a black Friesian galloping in snowdrifts; a gray Andalusian amid violet flowers; a chestnut Arabian prancing in autumn leaves.These lush photographs are accompanied by poetry and are followed by text and drawing that profile each breed, highlighting the particularly outstanding traits of each horse depicted. Vavra pays special attention to the Andalusian, providing an essay on its romantic history. Presented on natural, handmade paper, Horses of the Sun fuses the beautiful simplicity of Vavra's earlier works with a new, fresh image of horses. For anyone who loves horses or simply appreciates the finest of photography, Horses of the Sun is a lovely gift -- a paean to this most beloved of animals....

    Beautiful photography that only Robert Vavra can capture. I have had this book for years and love to look through it especially since I am familiar with many of the horses pictured.

    Horse photography books are really easy to make, but to be something special and memorable, they have to be superb... this one is. The ultimate coffee table book for anyone who likes horses.

    My father owns a copy of this one.It has the most stunning collection of horsey-photographs I have ever seen. I remember very clearly beeing a little girl and spending hours with this book, admiring it's contens. Yesterday, after many years not thinking about it, I stumbled over it by accident, remembered how I loved it and was quite surprised that it hadn't lost any magic. It is a beautiful work of art.

    Robert Vavra is an equine poet-photographer. Photos capture not only the essence of the individual but the power and grace of the species.
