Short Synopsis
In The Faraway Horses, Buck Brannaman shares his renowned methods for horse training and provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical adviser.

Full Synopsis
Nearly every week of the year, Buck Brannaman is on the road, conducting horsemanship clinics in which he teaches horse owners how to better understand and work with their animals, creating a relationship based on trust and respect rather than force. Buck's skill has become the stuff of legend—in fact, the main character in Robert Redford's film The Horse Whisperer was based largely on him, and he served as the director's technical adviser during the shoot.

"These principles are really about life—about living your life so you're not at war with the horse, or with other people," Buck writes. At heart, this rich and rewarding autobiography is a prescription for living a harmonious existence—whether it involves horses or not.

"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

"Buck Brannaman is no ordinary horseman. He is demonstrating his way of turning frightened horses into friends, a way that has more to do with respect and trust than mastery or manhandling." ---Smithsonian
