Hollow Tree by Tracy Gold

“Hollow Tree”

Seven decades. Six stories. Three families. One horse farm.

“Hollow Tree” is about loving and losing people and horses. The same characters appear as daughters, mothers, and even grandmothers.

I wrote, edited, and designed this book for my University of Baltimore Masters of Fine Arts thesis.
