A Horseman's JourneyBook - 2004
In his best-selling The Faraway Horses, we learned about how Buck Brannaman, the inspiration for The Horse Whisperer, found his calling and honed his craft. Since its publication, the book has also struck a responsive chord with non-horse owners because of the universal application of Brannaman's approach to interpersonal relationships. Believe continues to chronicle this journey. We meet people and horses with whom Brannaman works, and experience firsthand the sense of hope he helps instil in riders and, ultimately, the horses. And beyond such face-to-face encounters, people continue to contact Brannaman with stories of the successes they achieved after reading The Faraway Horses.Here is a woman who suffered an abusive childhood and marriage. After watching a Brannaman clinic, she expressed her epiphany to the trainer: I came home a different person. Now because of you I am going to look at a young horse tomorrow, and my boys are planning the new pens they are going to build for me.
