    " Liked the story, but the book was too "promotional/buy all my other stuff and book a clinic". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 9/11/2013

    " Buck is such an incredible person and the impact he has had on so many horses and humans is amazing. You don't have to be a "horse" person to enjoy this book, as there are so many life lessons to be learned from the interactions of the human and the horse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Aubrey | 8/8/2013

    " This book was not as good as faraway horses. Its primarily told by people who've attended Buck's clinics. Its not bad but wasn't what I was hoping for. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Misteeyed | 8/3/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 5/17/2013

    " What a gem! Love the dual narrators for a truly exceptional audio book version. Fabulous stories by the original "Horse Whisperer". Loved the writing style - Buck's intro to each story, then the perspective of the horse owner. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista Knigge | 4/7/2013

    " Quick read- It's as much about fixing broken people as broken horses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 11/26/2012

    " Wow - lots of life lessons. Looking forward to attending my first Brannaman clinic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 9/3/2012

    " You don't have to be a cowgirl to enjoy this book. But if you treat pets or animals in general with disdain or with the attitude that they are property or employees you might not get it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki Neiswinter | 7/21/2012

    " What can I say, I love Buck. The book was an easy read with lots of great stories. He has definitely found his niche in this world, with horses that is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thimbleberry | 5/14/2012

    " I listened on audio, and quite enjoyed it. Not sure if everyone would be interested if they had never heard of him before. If you have then you probably want to hear any scraps of insight this man has, and so will be thrilled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.J. Darlington | 5/2/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. It's a collection of stories people have shared about being impacted by Buck at his clinics. His introductions to the stories themselves were also inspiring. Great for any horse lover, but they're also encouraging for folks in all walks of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/14/2012

    " This isn't just for those who are looking for insight on working better with their horses--there is great stuff here that applies to getting along with people, including the value of humility and the importance of learning to yield. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 1/13/2012

    " I can't get enough of Buck Brannaman so I was excited to read this book. Buck writes half the book and the other half are stories from his students in how working with their horses has changed their personal lives. "
