Shy Boy: The Horse That Came in from the Wild by Monty Roberts
From the author of The Man Who Listens to Horses -- a top bestseller -- comes the remarkable story of a wild horse. In The Man Who Listens to Horses, we learned about Monty Roberts' life and his amazing techniques for communicating with horses. In this moving new book from famed horse whisperer Monty Roberts, his beloved horse Shy Boy takes centre stage. This book captures their unique relationship, starting when Shy Boy was a wild mustang. During a three day journey across 100 miles of Nevada desert, Roberts and Shy Boy tested one another's fortitude and "joined up". Months later, Roberts took Shy Boy back out to the wild, set him free, and gave the horse a choice: return to his herd, or stay with Roberts. What happened -- told in gripping narrative and full-colour photos -- is so dramatic and moving that it will surprise every reader. The reader, even if he's not a rider, will find Monty's gentle method inspiring because it presents man as a partner in dialogue with a horse. We see Monty's techniques in action and fall in love with Shy Boy just as Monty did.
