A forty-ton truck hurtles out of control on a snowy country road, a teenage girl on horseback in its path.& 160;& 160;In a few terrible seconds the life of a family is shattered.& 160;& 160;And a mother's quest begins -- to save her maimed daughter and a horse driven mad by pain.& 160;& 160;It is an odyssey that will bring her to...
The Horse Whisperer
He is the stuff of legend.& 160;& 160;His voice can calm wild horses and his touch heal broken spirits.& 160;& 160;For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubled ears, such men were once called Whisperers.& 160;& 160;Now Tom Booker, the inheritor of this ancient gift, is to meet his greatest challenge.
Annie Graves has traveled across a continent with her daughter, Grace, and their wounded horse, Pilgrim, to the Booker ranch in Montana.& 160;& 160;Annie has risked everything -- her career, her marriage, her comfortable life--in her desperate belief that the Whisperer can help them.& 160;& 160;The accident has turned Pilgrim savage.& 160;& 160;He is now so demented and dangerous that everyone says he should be destroyed.& 160;& 160;But Annie won't give up on him, for she feels his fate is inextricably entwined with that of her daughter, who has retreated into a heartrending, hostile silence.& 160;& 160;Annie knows that if the horse dies, something in Grace will die too.
In the weeks to come, under the massive sky of the Rocky Mountain Front, all their lives--including Tom Booker's--will be transformed forever in a way none could have foretold.& 160;& 160;At once an epic love story and a gripping adventure, The Horse Whisperer weaves an extraordinary tale of healing and redemption--a magnificent emotional journey that explores our ancient bonds with earth and sky and hearts untamed.& 160;& 160;It is a stirring elegy to the power of belief and self-discovery, to hopes lost and found again.
