Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

"Some books are read for their lyricism and literary merit, while books like Brannaman's autobiography are often read more for the insights of a remarkable life. Equal parts life history and specifics of dealing with challenging horses, Brannaman's wisdom is not just suited to horse lovers, but will resonate for anyone who wants to live more harmoniously." —BIG SKY JOURNAL"Brannaman is insightful enough to understand what he's learned from horses, mature enough to apply what he's learned, and articulate enough to pass those thoughts along simply and directly. There's really no need for literary gymnastics. Instead, this is one of those books that stays quietly with you." —DENVER POST"An engaging read. At Heart, The Faraway Horses is a rich and rewarding autobiography that offers a prescription for living a positive and harmonious life - with horses or even without them." —COWBOYS & INDIANS magazine"This autobiography of a cowboy who's a gentler, not a breaker, is a happy mix of eye-opening instruction and inspiration." —TRUE WEST magazine"This book is written in a straightforward style that keeps the reader wanting to learn more. Readers will enjoy the poignant life of one of America's top cowboys. It is nice to know that the horse has an advocate like Buck Brannaman." — HORSE CONNECTION magazine
