Wild Provence takes you on a journey into a horse culture infused with traditions that reach back to the Middle Ages. You know American cowboys by heart: the land, the clothes, the work, and even the food. But step across the Atlantic into Provence and you discover an ancient place where cowboys work among pink flamingos, a broad marsh where white horses dance with black bulls, where the air is pervaded by sea salt and lavender. Here the earthy, rustic food reflects more than the land and the sea, it mirrors a way of life. Enter Wild Provence and discover the Gardians, France's cowboys of the Camargue.
"Lorraine Rawls' groundbreaking work documenting the Gardians and the Camargue brings to the attention of the American public a ranching culture little known in this country, and illustrating yet again the parallels between people who make their living raising horses and cattle around the world"
Director of the Western Folklife Center
