Telling the story of Buck Brannaman's life, this book gives horse owners the keys to understanding their animals. Buck Brannaman is a horse gentler - not a horse "breaker" - who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics. Buck Brannaman's method of training focuses on communicating with horses, reading their body language and making them feel safe so that horse and rider can achieve a true union and in this book, he shares the knowledge he has cultivated over a lifetime. He also provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Robert Redford's movie "The Horse Whisperer", for which he was the technical advisor.
About the Author

William Reynolds is the associate publisher of Cowboys & Indians magazine and lives with his family in Santa Ynez, California.
'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 "When it comes to horses, Buck Brannaman is part guru, part psychologist, and all cowboy. He's a 19th-century man in a 21st-century world, and his life is at once inspirational and instructive." - Tom Brokaw "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. Horses and life, it's all the same to me." - Buck Brannaman
