The photography will delight your eyes and the stories will warm your heart.
Jim has spent most of his adult life hiking and photographing on public land in the West. He has climbed all 54 of Colorado's highest mountains, and has camped in the wilderness in all four seasons, creating thousands of landscape photographs. In Great Ranches of the West Jim has focused his cameras on private land and ahs made some remarkable discoveries. There are close to 600 photographs in this book, created over a five-year span. The photography and stories reveal how important this ranchland and the families who live there are to our country.
An eye opening and heart touching portrait of a culture and industry that is in great danger of being lost. This book will help readers understand the urgency of preserving the Western ranchlands, made up of families and rural communities, that provide nourishing food for our nation, preserve a healthy natural environment, and entrust that great American values will endure.

One of the things that makes a ranch great is its history. Jim Keen has done a crackerjack job of picking out stories from the past that shed light on the present. This combination of the history with his award winning photography makes for a stunning book.
Tom "Dr. Colorado" Noal ~ Professor of History at The University of Colorado, Denver.
In Jim Keen's one-man exhibit, The Great Ranches of the West at Denver Internationals Airport, passengers were offered a respite to the hectic experiences associated with travel. The responses received about Jim's photography were extremely positive and moving. The unique subject mater that he has so successfully mastered brings to the viewer a sense of place and romance to a way of life. The beautiful images in The Great Ranches of the West convey solitude, hard work and harsh conditions. They transport the viewer to a vanishing part of our history.
Colleen Fanning ~ Art Program Manager, Denver International Airport
