From Shanna Lewis’s review of “Mountain Ranch” by Michael Crouser for Colorado Public Radio:

You can almost smell the scent of well worn leather in the black and white image of a cowboy swinging onto a moving horse on the cover of Minneapolis photographer Michael Crouser’s new book, “Mountain Ranch.” This collection of photos made at ranches southwest of Steamboat Springs feels timeless. Crouser shows the constancy of ranch life and the hard work and persistence of the people who do it. He doesn’t shy away from the blood, mud and struggles, while he also shows the beauty of the environment, the harsh weather and the rancher’s connections with the land and animals.
