"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)
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.
I would recommend this book to anybody. It was interesting and has a little bit of knowledge for everyone.
Interesting, intriguing story about a natural horseman. Seems to be a good balance of time on Buck and time on horses; we get to see how the two were intertwined and how lessons from one were applied to the other -- and back again. I'd recommend the book. It has some good points about life and horsemanship. And I'm amazed at how Buck had such a hard life but turned out so well. Probably more than I could handle. Kudos for Buck!

The authenticity and sincerity of the story...and that my 8 year old son loved it too. He's listened to it twice now.
I liked it all. Nothing to dislike!
I think hearing the story brings you closer to it. Makes you more a part of it!
yes, even though I didn't get too.
The audio books are great for me because I do alot of driving. Thank you for making it possible!
Inspiring for Everyone
It Linked using what I have always done for horses for people as well. I did this too but didn't realize it.
When Buck told the story about Forest making him cut down the weeds and the lesson it taught him.
Absolutely. I did not want to put this book down (metaphorically)
Buck is an amazing person and I am glad that he is able to not only help horses but so many people as well!!!
