An epic journey with proper Romani Gypsies on the road to a traditional Gypsy horse fair in northern England.
235 Romani cultural photographic images, a travel narrative with forty art plates and twenty-two poems.
For more than a thousand years, Gypsies wandered, seldom welcome, often misunderstood, searching for today’s bounty. Gypsy Horses and the Travelers’ Way rides bareback into the midst of their mysterious culture. This poetic adventure celebrates their proper Romani heritage and beloved colored horses during the annual journey to the age-old Appleby Fair.
“He got it absolutely right– on all levels. His camera has captured the magical moments of our beloved Gypsy horses, his writings about the wagons on the road to Appleby Fair reveal the fine detail in the fabric of Romani life, and his poems sing to our true Gypsy spirit.” — Gordon Boswell, Romani historian, musician, and poet
