A candid exploration of the abiding bond between humans and horses from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Thousand Acres. 'intensely lovable' Daily Telegraph 'fascinating' Financial Times 'gives insight into the ups and downs of ownership' Racing Post 'stylishly written' The Economist Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley draws upon her first-hand knowledge to examine the horse on all levels - practical, theoretical and emotional. Drawing on the wisdom of trainers, vets, jockeys and a real-life horse whisperer, Smiley adds an element of drama and suspense as two of her own horses begin their careers at the racetrack. As the horses get closer to the winner's circle, we are enchanted, enthralled and informed about what it's really like to own, train and root for a racehorse.
