"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."
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.

"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)
This book was a great reveal into life of Buck Brannaman. I listened to it on a trip and will buy a hard copy as well.
I'd already seen Buck the movie. I also own a couple of Buck Brannaman's DVDs. I thoroughly enjoyed the nlook inside Buck's private life. And can't wait to attend his clinics.
This is a wonderful book. The narration is excellent. I don't even own horses but I still loved this book. This is a book with real heart. I would recommend it to anyone.
I had the privilege of having a very close horse friend. He trusted me. I loved him. You understand. To have a horse be your friend is one of the greatest experiences in this world. Thank you for loving horses.
This book exceeded my expectations. I didn't expect to have such detail coming from a man of few words. Narration was great too. Definitely recommend especially to Buck fans.
I will listen to this over and over!
It gave insights into both horses and people and why they behave as they do.
Great voice, I thought it sounded like this was his story.
The story about the filly being taken from her mother. Buck saved her from such torture. Then there was the story of kulmeni.
Write more Buck!
The experiences of Buck are really brought to life and you almost feel like your there in his memories with him
The truthfulness of the story
No I have not listened to any before but I did enjoy it
When Buck talks about his childhood
I really recommend this book
Yes, it is a great story about a rough start to a life and how it was redeemed.
The focus on how horses make a life full and rewarding.
His voice contributes to the cowboy/western theme.
There is a movie called, "BUCK".
Captivating, Emotional, Informative,
Buck Brannaman showed courage and perseverance without sounding egotistical.
John Prudent made the characters come alive.
Horse Whisperer - haha!
revealing, compelling, and fascinating
Buck, he is an honest man.
First part was slow and a bit morose. But I understand why it needed to be there after listening to the complete book. Buck's childhood formed his relationships with the horses. He is a good friend to horses and people alike.
