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)

    Story
    "A Truly Admirable Humble Man"
    Would you listen to The Faraway Horses again? Why?

    Yes, and I have. I am a horsewoman but this book is relevant for anyone. It's a story about a life of a problem solver, a humanitarian, animal advocate, a genuinely humble good man. I loved this.

    "Not what I expected, but enjoyed it"

    After listening to several Mark Rashid books, I was expecting more of the same from Buck. I suppose I didn't do my homework, and found this more of a story about Buck's life than a story meant to teach horsemanship. Regardless, I enjoyed the story enough to listen through it twice.

    Story
    "Not just for horsemen"

    Buck knows a lot about horses and tells how he's used that information in relation to humans. How he chose not to let his upbringing ruin his future but rather to use it for good. Excellent book I'll listen to many times over again

    "Fantastic read!"

    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.
