Sienna Craig first came to Mustang, Nepal, as a 19-year-old anthropology student interested in the mysterious "horse culture" high in the Himalayas. An experienced equestrian herself, Craig planned to focus her fieldwork on the methods and practices of the Mustangi people and how they formed a complex, spiritual relationship with their animals. But the result of her efforts far exceeded her expectations. In a remote, obscure corner of the world, she found a community of vibrant individuals caught in the gray space between the traditional and the modern, between deep spirituality and political unrest. Craig was welcomed initially because she could speak Nepali and "talk horse" with the locals, but because of her openness as a researcher and her kindness as a woman, she was soon brought into their homes as much more than a guest or friend. "Horses Like Lightning" offers an intimate portrait of an extraordinary culture and tells how one woman found her place in it.
