The Faraway Horses, which was the inspiration for the Sundance Film Festival’s award-winning documentary Buck in 2011, is Buck Brannaman’s richly textured and stunning account of his life from an abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life ‘horse-whisperer’, Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses- -and people--with his understanding, compassion, and respect. A truly American story about a cowboy and sage, The Faraway Horses tells the tale of the extraordinary life of an extraordinary man. At heart, this rich and rewarding memoir is a roadmap for living a harmonious and honourable existence among horses and humans. This updated edition features a new foreword and introduction.
‘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
