The colour photographs of the sculptures, which represent the visual core of this book, have been provided by the artist and were taken in gallery installations, her studios or her foundry. An essay by the noted author and horsewoman Jane Smiley captures the depth of Butterfield's character and passion. John Yau, poet and art critic, adds a formal analysis of the artist's work, especially discussing her personal and deep-rooted philosophical beliefs. A selection of poems by the late Vicki Hearne, poet, animal trainer and close friend of the artist, evokes Butterfield's knowledge of her subjects and the relationship of those subjects to the artist's creations.

As Smiley says, "I have never met a horse lover who did not gasp at the truth of Butterfield's horses," and this catalogue, timed to coincide with a traveling exhibition of Butterfield's work, is sure to delight anyone with a passion for horses and art.
