Overview

Does a love last forever? Can a father teach a child how to face life's passing? Do horses fly? Do you listen to your dreams and search for an answer?
One fateful morning, a lawyer calls on Angelo, an Italian horse-trainer, to announce that he is the heir of a memento from the Buffalo Bill estate: it consists of a box and a letter that the legendary hero wrote to a child he presumed to be the fruit of a romantic interlude with an Italian beauty while he was in Rome with his Wild West Show in 1890.
Bending time, we become privy to the great American hero's love story and are electrified by the ventures of young and old horsemen alike who - knowingly or unknowingly - quest for that mystical, never-to-be-forgotten magic ride.

"Offering some new twists to stories about 'horse whisperers,' Balchus sets his novel in Italy where he weaves two timelines while successfully intermingling the culture of Italy with that of the American West...
Questions about love, duty, purpose in life and the ancient bond between man and horse are interwoven in two stories that are deftly connected by plot and character development... Balchus's story could be transformed into a successful screenplay... a novel suitable mainly for adolescent readers fascinated by horses." Kirkus Reviews
"As a lover of both, Italy and the Wild West, I couldn't pass on this book and got totally absorbed! Fun to read, deep, moving and inspiring!" Amazon Reviewer
"For anyone who has experienced knowing they have met their soul mate, or has had the intuition that their horse silently speaks to them, this book is for you. Nicholas Sparks move over - this is so much better and more profound on all levels." Amazon Reviewer
