In these nine intensely compelling essays, with a new preface, bestselling author Tom McGuane shares remarkable stories of the exceptional horses and horsemen he has known as he learned roping, cutting, dallying, and ultimately trust. He addresses the special and profound relationship between humans and horses: what horses reveal about us, what we can learn from them, what they learn from us, and the symbiosis that results from a perfect match. The relationship between rider and horse runs deeper than any show or job, and McGuane's work with both animals and humans over the years provides a rich and nuanced depth of understanding about every level of the bond that he explores in his elegant, award-winning prose.

Review:

"His sheer writing skill is nothing short of amazing."--New York Times"Tom McGuane characterizes the alliance between humans and horses as a 'burst of poetry.' It's a perfect description of that relationship at its best. And in each of these pieces, Tom illuminates that truth beautifully, giving us the gift of his own poetry in the process." --Robert Redford"Tom McGuane has written a lovely, thoughtful book, gentle in its humor and original in its perceptions. I found it a delight." --Larry McMurtry"In Some Horses, Tom McGuane virtually recreates the animal with his usual magnificent prose so that you'll be incapable of looking at them the same way again." --Jim Harrison"There is simply on one I would rather read on the subject of horses than Tom McGuane."--Verlyn Klinkenborg "No one writes about horses better than Tom McGuane because he sees into their hearts and accepts them as they are. He has lived intimately with horses for so long that they are no longer 'other, ' but are beheld and cherished as friends." --Gretel Ehrlich

From the Back Cover:

Tom McGuane loves horses. Nowhere is that more evident than in his deft and utterly fascinating essays about some of the more remarkable horses and horsemen he has known.In these nine essays, he examines the relationship between horses and humans: what it is about horses that reveals so much about ourselves, what we see in them, why they respond to us, and the symbiosis that can result from such a match. Whether he is writing about cutting horses, learning to rope, or the birth of a foal, McGuane's passion finds expression in his extraordinary talent. (53/4 X 81/2, 188 pages, illustrations)
