In the hills of Tennessee, Shane Carson, a gifted, nationally-recognized horseman, is living the good life. When a mysterious mustang shows up on his farm, Shane doesn’t know how—or why—the horse appeared, but the horse’s distinctive brand identifies her. She is one of the Spirit Horses, a rare, wild herd that runs free on the Shoshone reservation in Wyoming. Watched over for centuries in the tribe’s ancestral valleys, these exquisite horses, according to belief, provide a link to the afterlife. When tragedy strikes in his life, Shane nearly loses his will to live—but for one promise he made to his young son: to return the mustang to her rightful home. On this bittersweet journey, Shane finds a world where tradition reigns, and ancient beliefs transcend modern logic. In this magnificent expanse of blue sky and wide open spaces, love is alive, but hate, intolerance, and greed threaten to close in. To make good on his vow, Shane must face the danger that threatens these horses, the tribe’s legacy, and his destiny.
Author: William Shatner
From his first time riding as a child, William Shatner has felt a deep love for horses. Whether seated in the saddle, communicating with them, or simply appreciating their beauty, his bond with these majestic animals is deep. For decades he has sought to share his joy—with children, veterans, those with disabilities, and many more—through his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show. And here, he brings that same joy to his fans and readers. In Spirit of the Horse, the Star Trek and Boston Legal legend speaks from the heart about the remarkable effect horses have had on his life and on the lives of others. From his first horse, bought impulsively on the advice of a twelve-year-old, to his favorite horses, acquired after many years of learning what to look for, this book draws from Shatner’s own experience and pairs it with a wealth of classic horse stories, including unique retellings of the Pegasus myth and the feats of the most famous war horses throughout history. The result is a celebration that captures the unparalleled connection between humans and horses—and the power, courage, mindfulness, and healing that they can inspire in us. Many fans have heard about Shatner’s passion for horses; few have seen it revealed as completely as it is here.

There are approximately seven million horses in the United States. Each year, over 70,000 end up going to slaughter. Hundreds of thousands more are abused, neglected, or abandoned by callous and irresponsible owners. With a heart as big as a pasture, author Melanie Bowles takes some of these horses into her sanctuary called Proud Spirit. Here, horses that arrive listless and broken find a home where they finally know safety. The bond between horse and caretaker does not happen overnight. It hangs by a fine thread of trust, which the author earns with endless patience and a full commitment to the well-being of the horses in her care. The horses, some of which have suffered severe abuse, astound her time and again with their ability to trust, return the love they are given, and enjoy the companionship of other horses. You will meet an entire stableful of remarkable horses: Next in series > > See all of the books in this series

Jeff Davis' Camel Corps -- the rough-and-readiest bunch the West had ever known -- riding into hell on the wildest mounts the West had ever seen! Respect it -- it refused to cooperate. Beat it -- it fought back. It bucked like a horse, kicked like a mule, and bit like a dog. It spat green slime with sure-shot accuracy, and -- if all else failed -- it gave up and dropped dead in its tracks. But Jeff Davis put some of his best cavalry troopers on the backs of these foreign beasts and sent them out on the deadly desert floor to bring down the most feared of all the Nadene Apache raiders.

An “indescribably touching, extraordinarily intelligent" (Los Angeles Times Book Review) chronicle of a fatal gun-battle between FBI agents and American Indian Movement activists by renowned writer Peter Matthiessen (1927-2014), author of the National Book Award-winning The Snow Leopard and the new novel In Paradise On a hot June morning in 1975, a desperate shoot-out between FBI agents and Native Americans near Wounded Knee, South Dakota, left an Indian and two federal agents dead. Four members of the American Indian Movement were indicted on murder charges, and one, Leonard Peltier, was convicted and is now serving consecutive life sentences in a federal penitentiary. Behind this violent chain of events lie issues of great complexity and profound historical resonance, brilliantly explicated by Peter Matthiessen in this controversial book. Kept off the shelves for eight years because of one of the most protracted and bitterly fought legal cases in publishing history, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse reveals the Lakota tribe’s long struggle with the U.S. government, and makes clear why the traditional Indian concept of the earth is so important at a time when increasing populations are destroying the precious resources of our world.

Early in her 20-year career as an animal communicator, the author discovered a deep telepathic bond with her horse Buddy which began a fifteen-year adventure into the world of equine mysticism. When Buddy started telling stories about equine spirituality, Ms. Devereux accepted the challenge to accelerate her own conscious development by recording their conversations. As she became more fluent in the "Language of Horse," a groundbreaking new book took form. Through myths and stories of the prehistoric past, the horses open readers, in stages, to the wisdom of the Goddess for spiritual healing and peace. Sparking a process of growth, through writing and guided visualizations, SPIRIT OF THE HORSE inspires readers to draw forth their own creation myths and stories with their own animal allies.

During Desert Storm, small teams of highly-trained reconnaissance men were sent deep into Iraq on extremely dangerous missions. One such man, Pettis Dentel, came back from the Gulf War only to find that he had brought the desert, with all its horror and bloodshed, home with him. Ravaged by the effects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Dentel's life and sanity spiral out of control, until his unexpected reunion with the survivors of a terrible battle on the plains of Iraq brings him to the point of destruction—or redemption. Written in a fast-paced, syncopated narrative, The Spirit Horses evokes the madness of war, the hellishly intense lifestyle of the modern day warrior, the hopelessness of failing to reintegrate into society, and the despair and mind-killing anguish of PTSD.
