Format: Hardcover
This book is about one phenominal human being who truly lives his life for the betterment of horses everywhere. Drawing from his early life experiences, he has figured a way to show horses that he is a partner and not a dominance in their lives.
Having spent four days at one of his clinics, I can attest that the man is honest to the core when it comes to his passion, the horse!

Format: Hardcover
Distance is everything to Buck Brannaman.
Time and space have made all the difference. Whether it's the 30 years since his harrowing childhood, or the nearly imperceptible space that constitutes trust between a horse and its rider, it's all been important to the horse-whisperer whose life and work helped breathe vitality into a gentle method of training animals. Now he's telling his own story in "The Faraway Horses."
Brannaman recounts his sometimes horrifying, occasionally funny adventures. He describes his training technique, built on trust and respect, not force. He writes about horses he's learned from, including Bif, the rank outlaw who became one of Buck's most trusted mounts. And he tells of owners he's taught, including the trainer who abused her show Arabians to make them look "spirited."
But the roots of his special connection with troubled and wild horses lie in his own childhood.
"I want people to be entertained, but there are some real stark realities out there," Brannaman says. "I hope it just doesn't go away after they close the book and put it on their shelf, but that the book's with them, maybe for the rest of their lives."

Format: Hardcover
I only know Buck Brannaman through his videos. He is indeed the "real deal" as a horseman and after reading his book he is the "real deal" as a human being. If anybody ever had a reason or an excuse to be a bitter, resentful, and hostile person it is Buck Brannaman. While he freely gives credit to those that helped shape him both as a person and as a horseman Buck is the one who ultimately decided to use his childhood experiences as motivation
for peace instead of violence. An inspirational book for anyone who has ever blamed their past for their stagnation.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the guy that the movie was loosely based upon and who helped them make the movie by using and training his own horse to perform the tasks they couldn't get the trained horses to do. What a life, but he certainly came out on top and is an inspiration to the rest of us. Very unique guy.

After watching the documentary "Buck", and hearing so many good things about this book. I decided it was time to buy it. It has a lot of in depth detail about Mr Brannaman and the hardships he has had to endure through his life. It was a great read and I recommend it for all horse people to read (And even none horse people).

I could not put the book down once I started to read it. Fantastic read and makes me want to be a better horsewoman.

We watched the documentary "Buck", and then bought this book. I read bits of it to my son - he really enjoys it, and so do I.
