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.

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.

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.

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.

The Native American on a horse is an archetypal Hollywood image, but though such equestrian-focused societies were a relatively short-lived consequence of European expansion overseas, they were not restricted to North America's Plains. Horse Nations provides the first wide-ranging and up-to-date synthesis of the impact of the horse on the Indigenous societies of North and South America, southern Africa, and Australasia following its introduction as a result of European contact post-1492. Drawing on sources in a variety of languages and on the evidence of archaeology, anthropology, and history, the volume outlines the transformations that the acquisition of the horse wrought on a diverse range of groups within these four continents. It explores key topics such as changes in subsistence, technology, and belief systems, the horse's role in facilitating the emergence of more hierarchical social formations, and the interplay between ecology, climate, and human action in adopting the horse, as well as considering how far equestrian lifestyles were ultimately unsustainable.

Touched by the Spirit of a Horse speaks primarily about two species, horses and humans. It addresses how each species is governed and educated, and how that governance critically affects them. This is not just another book about training horses; it is about humans taking on the responsibility of reshaping our collective awareness to make the world better for everything on it, using the temperament of horses as our primary role model for how we should want to behave. We must diligently work to develop the conscience, compassion and character of anyone who accepts a position of authority. This is true for parents, clergy, trainers, managers, educators and all people who govern our planet. People in positions of authority must give high-principled directions to their students, and teach by their example; so expected behaviors are obtained from their students, whether they are horses or children. We can learn to be better people if we study the equine way of wisdom and virtue, their way of honesty and truthfulness, and apply those principles to our human approach to living. Horses seem to have an innate knowledge of what's right, by what seems to be Divine intervention. My goal is to capture the understanding of the innate love, intelligence, and social capability of horses. Horses naturally seem to know how to live in accordance with God's laws. I think God created horses to be His ambassadors, to teach us tolerance and moderation. Horses just seem to give the impression that they are innately able to get things done right, all the time, without a lot of fuss, and very little use of force.

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: Dusty, a young Thoroughbred who recovered from severe injuries to reveal a rambunctious personality and a knack for stealing hats. Maddy, an elderly mare, and Dancer, a gallant Appaloosa, both of whom had been isolated for years but whose ecstatic first acquaintance at Proud Spirit was, mysteriously, like the reunion of two soul mates. Annie, a little sorrel mare who will break your heart with her weary kindness and who found peace, at last, under an old oak tree in a pasture at Proud Spirit. Wrangler, a Miniature whose premature separation from his dam turned him into a tiny tormentor. His rowdy innocence helped Marshal, a huge palomino Draft horse with neurological trauma, become playful and engaged as he educated Wrangler in horsy manners. The Horses of Proud Spirit is an homage to the spirit of these alluring creatures and a moving memoir of lessons learned in compassion, strength, and loss.
