Publisher's Summary

"I've started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I've tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider." —Buck Brannaman
In The Faraway Horses, Buck Brannaman shares his renowned methods for horse training and provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical adviser.


What the Critics Say

"Buck Brannaman is part of a lineage of skilled horsemen, and for the horses he works with, it is about trust and understanding, not submission." (Robert Redford)

What did you like most about The Faraway Horses?

Everything felt so real and yet so life affirming. Buck Brannaman manages to infuse even the darkest times in his life with a warmth that will break your heart without crushing it completely. and John Pruden does a marvellous job reading it.

What did you like best about this story?

This man is simply inspiring. I think we could all learn something from Buck.

Have you listened to any of John Pruden’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was my first one but I'd be happy to give his others a try too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

It's not just a book for horse lovers. I don't think you actually learn much about horsemanship in this book. You can take away valuable lessons about life though and I suppose we can all benefit from that.
