Blacksmiths have been an essential part of the development of global civilization for thousands of years. Initially forging rudimentary tools and weapons, their work transitioned to more sophisticated tools, agricultural implements, and instruments of war. The ironwork of these early craftspeople decorated the castles of Europe, the temples of Japan, and the barns of Pennsylvania. The Industrial Revolution reduced the need for the blacksmiths' work and hence slowed the development of their craft. In the last 30 years, there has been a renaissance in the skill and art of shaping hot iron. This renaissance was led by individuals such as Francis Whitaker and Alex Bealer whose dedication to the craft inspired many to learn the art and techniques of blacksmithing. This book is about a few of Francis Whitaker's students and the beautiful, functional ironwork these modern artisans forged for two ranches in southwest Colorado.
