Read full description of the books:
I have mixed feelings about this book. The author started out writing a magazine piece about a crippled horse trainer and parlayed it into a book. For her research, she returned again and again to the reservation on which the trainer lived. She writes affectingly about the poverty and endurance of the people on the reservation. She also gets herself into some trouble because of her poor boundaries.
Jones is at her best exploring the issues of white privilege. I could take or leave some of the mysticism. There wasn't as much about the horses as I thought there would be, which disappointed me.
Think of the author as a closer-to-home, less humorous Elizabeth Gilbert. She writes honestly about some bad choices, but I felt she could have gone a bit deeper.
One caveat: there is a really brutal scene about horse castration in this book. Not for the faint of heart.
