Two UNM Press Authors Honored
with Western Heritage Awards

ALBUQUERQUE—The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City will honor two UNM Press authors with Western Heritage Awards at a black-tie gala on April 12th.

In the nonfiction category, Max Evans will be recognized for his book, For the Love of a Horse. In his eighty-plus years, Evans has known, owned, ridden, and been thrown by quite a number of horses. In For the Love of a Horse, the beloved western author pays homage to his favorite horses by sharing their stories and the starring roles they’ve
played in his real and literary adventures. The prolific
author of twenty-five books, Evans claims that this book—a tribute to a bygone era in American history and in his own long life—is his favorite.

Freelance writer and photographer Nancy Wood will be awarded the photography prize for her book, Eye of the West. Focusing on the Grass Roots People of Colorado, the Utes, Taos Pueblo, and homesteaders of Pie Town, New Mexico, Wood devoted nearly twenty years to capturing and cataloguing a vanishing part of the American West. These intimate portraits, achieved through Wood’s long associations with each subject, offer rare glimpses into a forgotten past.

First presented in 1961, the Western Heritage—or Wrangler—Awards celebrate and honor the legacy of those whose works in literature, music, film, and television contribute to keeping the spirit and rich heritage of the American West alive.
